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
Until the end of October 2021, motorhomes and campervans that are self-contained and have their own toilet facilities will be allowed to park overnight at a small selection of our forest car parks. From the South of Galloway to the West coast, 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.
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.
