Woodlands Caravan Park is a beautiful family run holiday park set in a nicely sheltered yet close to the coast location, in the popular Scottish town of Carnoustie.
The park has space for touring caravans and motorhomes as well as for holidaymakers that wish to bring their tents onto the site. 14 of the 43 pitches on the site are designated as 'super pitches'. Woodlands Caravan Park is open from March to October.
There is a wide range of facilities on site to ensure that guests are comfortable throughout their stay. These include toilet and shower blocks in addition to washing up and laundry facilities. On site, you will also find a games room complete with pool table and plasma screen television. In addition, the park also has private Wi-Fi for guests to use during their stay; the passcode can be requested from reception upon arrival.
Woodlands Caravan Park is in an ideal location for anyone looking to explore the natural beauty of the Scottish coastline. The park’s reception offers mountain bike hire for those looking to explore the coastline and Scottish countryside on two wheels, while there are plenty of trails into the countryside and walks through the town to keep guests busy during their stay.
The town of Carnoustie is a charming one and is definitely somewhere you should be looking to explore during you time at Woodlands Caravan Park. The main attractions are the long main street, complete with friendly shops as well as bars and restaurants, and the beach.
Further afield, the rest of the county of Argus is at your disposal on your camping and caravan holidays in Scotland. The city of Dundee can be found a mere 10 miles from the site and is a brilliant place to visit. In addition to a great collection of shops and a range of other leisure activities that can be enjoyed, Dundee has some amazing park spaces and offers wonderful views of the River Tay.
A cross country drive to the north west will take you to Glamis Castle, one of the area’s most popular tourist attractions. Further to the north is Brechin Castle Centre that has a wide array of things to do, including a huge country park for those that want to wander and explore at their leisure.
Outdoor lovers are encouraged to be up early and make the drive to the Cairngorms National Park, where such activities as climbing, abseiling and guided hiking are available. Or just amble gently, taking in the views, or drive and enjoy them from the comfort of your car or campervan/motorhome.
Scotland is famous for fishing and golf, and both can be enjoyed both in and around Carnoustie as well as further afield. The famous Carnoustie Golf Links is open to the public for most of the year, while keen anglers can find a stream, river or lake, and perhaps even hire a boat or head out for a day’s work with the local fishermen.
Woodlands Caravan Park is a charming and tranquil location at which to pitch during your camping, motorhome and caravan holidays in Scotland.

Carnoustie isn’t nearly as popular as it used to be as a holiday destination, if the photograph in the restaurant I ate in on the first night of my stay is to be believed. The photograph depicted a black and white beach scene, reminiscent of the Costal Del Sol, with holiday makers packed in towel to towel, except it wasn’t of the Costa Del Sol, it was of the front at Carnoustie. Its perhaps just as well its popularity has waned, otherwise I might not have managed to get a pitch at the Woodlands caravan park at relatively short notice, even towards the end of the season.
The site is situated within the beautiful village of Carnoustie, and manages to combine the peace and tranquillity of getting away from it all, being a fairly quiet site, with the convenience of being within reasonable walking distance of all the facilities the village has to offer.
The site itself is council run, and is a credit to Angus council, with its roomy pitches and well maintained grounds, along with the usual facilities which were spotlessly maintained throughout my stay, including a laundrette and games room. The warden is, according to the sign, on duty from 08:00 to 20:00, but she lives on site, and seems happy to assist out with these hours when required. I was also pleasantly surprised that she remembered me from a visit to the site earlier in the year even though the trip had been entirely uneventful.
Bordering the site there is a decent sized park with football goals, and a basketball court which can be accessed directly from the site through a secure gate, ideal for exercising the dog or playing with the kids. Moving down to the village there are a nice selection of local shops, along with pubs and restaurants, and a leisure centre. For longer stays there is also plenty to do in the surrounding area, with access to some of the best golf courses in the world nearby, country walks, and of course the city of Dundee with its many attractions. Carnoustie may not be as popular as it once was, but it is certainly worth a visit with your caravan.
