One of the featured campsites – Fidden Farm on Mull

As schools break up for the summer and this glorious spell of warm, sunny weather is continuing, why not make some plans to visit some of Scotland’s fantastic scenic campsites?

VisitScotland has been analysing Instagram hashtags, and cross referencing these to some of the most popular family-oriented campsites in Scotland, as voted by TripAdvisor users.  Their results highlight twelve most scenic campsites right across Scotland that stand out for their memorable views.  The twelve campsites are categorised by location:

• Stargazing
• Beaches
• Woodlands
• Mountains
• Sunrises
• Sunsets

If you’re looking for some inspiration for a family camping trip this summer, take a look at these instantly instagrammable sites.

Half of them are included in my own recommended top campsites in Scotland.  You’ll find many more suggestions in my article as well as in the companion post on my Top 10 Scottish beach campsites.

And if you’re looking for more info and the inside track on the best places to eat, stay and visit in Scotland, have a browse around the iKnow online community forum.  It contains loads of hints and tips from people passionate about Scottish tourism, including VisitScotland Ambassadors like myself.

Happy camping – and long may the fine weather continue!

  1. We stayed at Fidden Farm in May 2015, definitely well worth the long drive. The showers ,loos and wash ups were modern and clean, there are no hookups, tv reception and scant phone signal, but who needs that when ,from your pitch, you can watch dolphins breaching and Gannets diving plus the views across to Iona are just beautiful. Take the foot ferry and a day walking Iona will provide even more great scenery . Only mile or so from the campsite is one of the best restaurants in Scotland, The Ninth Wave, we treated ourselves to some fabulous food and drink . For us Fidden Farm was simply the best.

    • Thanks for leaving a great report about your stay there. The shower/toilet block has clearly been finished since our stay there – we’ll need to pay a return visit to eat at The Ninth Wave too.
