Planning Your Camping Holiday - Are You a Camper Or A Glamper?
Before you choose your camping holiday in Scotland, first find out what kind of camper you are:
- You are a camper - if you love waking up in a tent, don't mind a little condensation, and would never admit to owning an airbed around the campfire.
- You are a glamper - if you love to book the quirkiest accommodation Scotland has to offer and prefer to shut the door at night to keep out the midges.
- You are a caravanner - if you like to take the comforts of home with you, including a double bed and all the mod-cons.
- You are a campervan fan - if you like to travel around seeing lots of Scotland and don't mind compromising on living space.
Whichever you prefer, here's how to plan your perfect camping or caravan holiday in Scotland
