Discover remote parts of this stunning landscape and get closer to nature by sacrificing your usual day-to-day comforts with a spot of camping.
Camping means different things to different people, for some it’s hiking off alone into the woods or up a Munro where few venture to wild camp, while for others, it’s pitching up in a campsite or caravan park where there are acres of wilderness, but you can still use a toilet, shower, and kitchen.
Camping, and even glamping, has become popular recently as this type of accommodation adopts a more eco-friendly approach. In the Park there is wealth of options from camping pods to campsites hidden in the woods, wild camping, which is lightweight, away for public roads and for one or two nights is legal in the Park however we do ask you “tread lightly” and have a read of the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.
For more tips, advice, and pointers on how to make the most of your camping experience in Scotland check out the Summer Camping Pocket Guide to Scotland.
There is something for every kind of camper in the Park, from the large family friendly sites such as Glenmore, Blair Atholl and Dalraddy to Caravan Club sites which take tents if you book in advance.
