BE A RESPONSIBLE TRAVELLER
If you are planning a camping or campervan trip around Scotland, it is always advised that you use official campsites or designated overnight parking areas. This will help preserve Scotland's natural landscape and benefit our small local communities and residents.
There are hundreds of campsites in scenic coastal or beach spots across the country, complete with facilities and docks for your campervan too.

Please remember to:
- Plan and book ahead. It's always useful to have a plan B ready.
- Be considerate. If you arrive somewhere and it's fully booked, contact nearby campsites to see if they have availability. Please don't stay overnight in an undesignated area.
- Always take your rubbish home with you and pick up after your dog.
- Keep a safe distance from any land management operations.
- Be very careful not to disturb or destroy a plant, bird, animal or geological feature.
- Don't damage or disturb cultural heritage sites.
- It's important to remember that access rights don't include motor vehicles. If public or private land owners restrict or regulate parking on their land, you should stick to their rules.
