Explore the past!
One of the best things about Scotland is the number of castles. With historical ledgers varying between 2,000 and 4,000 castles in the country, it’s home to so many still that it’s difficult to be more than a few miles drive from one. There are about 1,500 castles still standing today in some fashion, from ruins to visitor’s attractions to fully functional homes passed down through generations.
Children are always fascinated by the history and architecture surrounding castles. The same things that children are bored by in the classroom come alive when they can see the moat and hear about the battles fought there.
Adults also love hearing about the lives of those who have lived in these great fortresses and Scotland is a pleasant way to introduce several castles without having to travel far. Perfect for static caravan holiday staycation as a couple or with the kids.

Find Nessie in Loch Lommond
Scotland is known for its 30,000 picturesque lochs and no visit to this favoured holiday locale would be complete without going to one – or a few! Big or small, these lakes are often bursting with historical or mythological origins that have been told for hundreds of years.
While there are some tidal salt water Scottish lochs, most are fresh water and Loch Ness is the 2nd largest of these. This very cold-water loch is best known for its tales of the long-necked sea creature of the same name lurking beneath its waters that date back to the 1930’s. While looking for Nessie, take a walk on the trail that circles the entire loch.
