Visit Scotland and pitch at Queen Elizabeth Caravan Park, a popular Caravan Club Site on the edge of the town of Stonehaven on the Aberdeenshire coast. The park opens towards the end of March and is open until early the following January every year, and welcomes members and non-members of the Caravan Club.
Here you will find 77 hardstanding pitches suitable for motorhomes or touring caravans, plus there is a small area suitable for up to three tents. Eight of the pitches at Queen Elizabeth Caravan Park are serviced. Facilities available at this campsite include a toilet and shower block, a laundrette and Wi-Fi.
This caravan park sits on Stonehaven Bay on the east coast of Scotland, with the town centre a short half-mile walk along the promenade. Among the attractions in the area is an open air, art deco, Olympic sized swimming pool, a leisure centre with several facilities including an indoor pool, and a challenging cliff top golf course offering a great place to play a round, as well as majestic views out to sea and across the Aberdeenshire countryside.
The beaches of Stonehaven Bay are clean and safe, with the seas perfect for paddling and swimming so long as tourists can withstand the temperature!
Guests looking to enjoy the outdoors will enjoy the beachfront walks offered from Queen Elizabeth Caravan Park. Dunnottar Castle can be found two miles away and is a popular location for guests looking to enjoy the miles of walking routes available. All of the trails in the area are accessible on bicycle as well as on foot.
Those heading into Stonehaven will find a quaint selection of shops, with locally owned and run businesses alongside popular brands and chains. There are also many cafés, bars and restaurants that look out to sea, and provide a lovely place to spend a few hours relaxing with the family.
If you've chosen to stay at the Caravan Club's Queen Elizabeth Caravan Park, you can easily visit Aberdeen – it's the nearest city to this site and just over half an hour away by car. Known as the Granite City, there's plenty to see and do here. Spend time at the Aberdeen Maritime Museum, the Aberdeen Art Gallery, the Stratosphere Science Centre or St Machar’s Cathedral and St Andrew's Cathedral. You might also be interested to learn that the city has triumphed in the Britain in Bloom competition a record-breaking 10 times.
About a 40-minute drive south along the coast from Queen Elizabeth Caravan Park is the coastal resort town of Montrose. Enjoy the coastal drive to the town and when there visit the museum, maybe tackle a round of golf at the Montrose Golf Links overlooking the sea or learn more about the local wildlife at the St Cyrus National Nature Reserve, where you can dip your toes in the chilly North Sea if you dare! If all of that doesn't take your fancy, there's the Montrose Air Station Heritage Centre, as well as the House of Dun and Montrose Basin Nature Reserve, where you can enjoy the magnificent architecture of this 18th century Georgian house and the fabulous Victorian gardens.
