  • Hi there, i'm just starting to plan our family touring holiday to Scotland next Easter. We will be there for 7-10 days in a rented motor home and our first stop will be the Dark Sky Observatory in the Galloway Forest Park. Can anyone recommend a decent touring site nearby? From there will are thinking of heading over to the Isle of Arran so any tips for that location would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!, Brendan

      Hey Brendan, Google "The Walled Garden campsite Croshill" for a good campsite close to the Dark Sky Observatory. Arran has a nice campsite near Lochranza which is close to both nature and the distillery. Feel free to open up a thread if you want more info.

      Thanks for your reply although I've since found Loch Doon Caravan Park which I think could be ideal for what we need. Do you know of this site?

      I don't personally. There is just a single review on the UK campsite website whose only negative is that the shower and toilet block was not ready. Just check with the campsite that they do have the facilities you need and you're golden (looks like a superb location)
