Visit Scotland on your caravan holidays for a peaceful break and a trip to remember.
And why not stay at Skelmorlie Mains Caravan Park, found within the Clyde Muirshel Regional Park in the heart of Scotland. The park offers a range of luxurious holiday homes as well as a villa for hire, while caravans may also become available for sale throughout the year for guests interested in making the park their permanent holiday retreat.
All the caravans at Skelmorlie Mains Caravan Park are fully serviced, guaranteeing guests a comfortable and relaxing stay whether they’re at the park for a week or enjoying an extended stay in their own holiday home.
The park sits on a gently sloping hillside, with most pitches enjoying panoramic views out across the Firth of Clyde and the islands found across the water. The site is within the village of Skelmorlie and it is just a short walk to the village centre. Guests will find everything they need in Skelmorlie, with a convenience store and other local businesses ensuring holiday essentials, luxuries and gifts can all be purchased easily. The village also has a friendly and welcoming bar that is always busy with locals and tourists.
Four miles away is the popular seaside town of Largs. Many guests head to the town if they’re looking for somewhere livelier than Skelmorlie, while there is a range of activities available for families to enjoy in Largs. Things to do there include swimming and paddling in the sea, beach sports, water sports and activities including windsurfing and diving, and there are also places to enjoy a round of golf. You can also spend time wandering round the shops in Largs, plus there are several pubs and cafés serving a great range of local produce. Anyone wanting to explore the neighbouring Isle of Arran can take a ferry from the small marina at Skelmorlie and enjoy a day away from the mainland.
Guests looking to enjoy the outdoors have plenty of options at their disposal. Several walking and cycling routes are available along the coastline, as well as within the Regional Park, which has areas of woodland as well as countryside and open spaces that can be explored at leisure. While much of the surrounding area is open for walking, there is a specified farm walk route provided by the park owners for those looking for a simple way to see the best of the local area.
Tourists with a passion for fishing can indulge at the coast or at the rivers and lakes of the Regional Park, while fishermen in Skelmorlie, Largs and the other coastal towns and villages are usually happy to take visitors out on trips with them.
Further afield, Glasgow is under an hour away and is a wonderful city filled with culture and heritage, as well as shops and a passionate sporting scene. A little further to the north is Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, filled with opportunities for outdoor adventure for guests that have explored the immediate area around Skelmorlie Mains Caravan Park in full. It is a beautiful region in which to spend your caravan holidays.

Ayrshire 23 Jul 2006
Toilets - filthy, reported to environmental health (we have photographs if interested)
Residents in static vans - friendly
Local louts visited site under influence of drink/drugs, this went unnoticed by proprietor due to office being 500m from site
Having received a frieldly welcome from proprietor's wife, we were left to choose between 2 pitches, the best of which was next to a residential static van. We parked our camper and erected our awning and the occupier of the van chatted to us in a friendly manner. The following day we visited the nearby Isle of Bute and on our return decided to suffer the toilets and stay for one more evening. Whilst fiance was paying the proprietor's wife the £12 fee, the proprietor took his opportunity of finding me alone and stating "that man pays £1500 per yer, do you think he wants to look at a tent?", this was in reference to the awning. He said it wasn't worth it and asked us to leave. Fiance returned having paid to stay another night, swiftly demanded refund and packed up, whilst doing so received sympathetic views from residents who were sorry to see us leave under the circumstances, they also commented on state of toilets.
I do not recommend this as a suitable site for tourers.
