Wake up in the woods
The forest is a magical place at any time of day. Why go home when you can stay?
The Scottish Government's COVID-19 restrictions may mean that that many of our campsites are closed but there are still plenty of options for those who want to spend the night surrounded by the sights and sounds of nature.
Composting toilets, mobile fire pits and no showers – Sallochy woodland campsite on Loch Lomond is a total eco-experience.
Cabins in the forest
Hire a wooden cabin by lovely Loch Long or in the stunning landscape of the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park. During the day you can enjoy plenty of activities for the whole family, miles of forest trails to explore and wonderful woodland wildlife. Book through Forest Holidays.
'Stay the Night' in your campervan or motorhome
Motorhomes and campervans will be allowed to park overnight at a small selection of our forest car parks. From the South of Galloway up to to Easter Ross, there are participating car parks across Scotland. Visit our Stay the Night webpage to find out where you can stay, how to use a Stay the Night car park, as well as our terms and conditions.
This is part of a short-term national trial that will run until 31 December 2020, which will help us understand the practicalities of offering this visitor experience longer term, so remember to tell us what you think after your stay!
Please note: Our stay-the-night trial is coming to an end on 31 December 2020.
We encourage responsible wild camping. Minimise any impact on your surroundings and take all of your litter home with you. The Scottish Outdoor Access Code has more information and guidance about how to wild camp responsibly.
Camping is welcome throughout the Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park but in order to protect some of our most cherished lochshores, byelaws covering camping and firelighting will come into effect in some parts of the Park between March and September. Camping from October to February is unaffected.
