So you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of your daily life? Searching for UK static caravan holidays for exceptional things to do that will thrill you?
Then the majestic, mighty Cairngorms National Park is just the place to visit. Covering a vast area, twice the size of the Lake District, the Cairngorms National Park offers more friendly villages, wildlife hotspots, lochs, rivers, forest paths, distilleries and mountains than you could possibly imagine.
Of course, you won’t find a Caravan Park high up in the mountains but search for your holiday home on Rent My Caravan. The urban centres of Inverness are around half an hour to the north of the Cairngorms. Thousands of tourists also take UK static caravan holidays in Glasgow and Edinburgh which are each around two and half hours away by road. In the Cairngorms region, you will discover cascading waterfalls and enormous forests of native trees. Not to mention the 43 mountains at over 3000 feet, known locally as ‘Munros’, including 5 of the UK’s 6 highest mountains. The scenery is glorious, breath-taking in fact. There are hundreds of orienteering courses, pony treks, cross-country skiing trails, mountain bike routes and a multitude of hills and mountains for rock-climbers and hill-walkers to attempt.
The outdoor hub at Aviemore is the base for many of the adventures. You could try your hand at any of these, in just one day:
- Take a trip on the Strathspey Steam Railway to admire the stunning scenery and views
- Ride on the highest railway in Britain – rise to the summit station at 1097 metres above sea level
- Take a guided visit to feed the reindeer at Glenmore. There are currently around 150 deer that are allowed to graze freely on the mountains.
- Visit the Glenlivet Distillery at Tomintoul, a destination on the famous Malt Whisky Trail
- If you’re more a fan of beer, the Cairngorm Brewery is worth a visit, where you can sample Ginger Rodent, Nessies, Trade Winds and Black Gold ales, all brewed here.
When to visit
It’s well known that Scottish weather is quite changeable, and it’s a common saying in the area that ‘there is no such thing as terrible weather here, only the wrong clothing!’ It’s best to be aware that winters in the National Park are quite cold, but as you are probably prepared for skiing and winter sports in this season, you will be well equipped to face the low temperatures. Summer temperatures can also be quite cool, due to the high altitude of the region.
