5 best campsites in Scotland for campervans
Written by Emelie|
Skiing requires a lot of luggage; personal luggage, boot bags, skis or snowboard bags and of course the games bag! We all know that so why not make your life easier and go with a Campervan.
One of our recommendations is to stay at Braemar Caravan Park. It’s a beautiful site that is specifically catered for campervans. It’s located in the Cairngroms National Park which is absolutely stunning especially in the winter.
Braemar Caravan Park is perfectly set up for skiing and snowsports, with ski lockers, boot wash, boot room and a drying room. So you wouldn't need to bring all your equipment into your campsite.
Glenshee Ski Centre is a short drive from Braemar Caravan Park, and is Scotland's largest winter resort. Whether ski touring, mountaineering, of getting up some speed and distance on the piste, it’s perfect for enjoying winter sports. Glenshee Ski Centre has over 25 miles of piste covering 3 glens and 4 munros. There are also nursery slopes for beginners, 26 blue and red runs, and some black runs for the more experienced.
1) Bring lots of warm clothes and avoid Cotton; incase you get wet you need to have proper winter gear that's dry and warm or incase you get stuck on the road you need to be prepared. In winter Cotton is your worst nightmare, go for the thermals, fleece and wools instead.
2) Don’t forget the ice scraper; a good scraper with a brush will save you lots of time, trust me, you don’t want to be stuck outside scraping your windows with your Debit Card…
3) Pack warm foods and hot drinks; nobody wants to eat a cold salad after a cold day in the snow. No, we want the hot stuff that warms us all the way to the soul.
4) Stay safe; winter weather is nothing to mess around with. Don’t take any unnecessary risks, it's just not worth it.
In all honesty we think winter is a magical time to enjoy a break in a caravan or motorhome. Whether you enjoy walking, photography, watching wildlife or doing winter sports, there’s no better place to spend the winter time.
