Point Sands Caravan Park is a beautiful park found in a wonderful coastal region of Scotland, on the Kintyre peninsula. The park has 20 pitches all offering a sea view, as well as four static caravans to hire and more holiday caravans that are available to buy for families who might be interested in making Point Sands their permanent holiday home location.
Electric hook-ups are available on the camping and caravanning site, which welcomes guests with motorhomes, touring caravans, and tents. Facilities provided at Point Sands for guests include shower and toilet blocks, dishwashing, a laundrette, and waste disposal.
There is also a small shop and café that guests can use to stock up on essentials and buy food and drink if they don’t wish to travel from the caravan park.
Guests staying at Point Sands will find plenty to do on the site and in the surrounding area. On the park there is a children’s play area and a wildlife pond, while those looking to explore nearby can enjoy a range of woodland walks around the park. There is also direct access to a private beach, perfect for guests looking to relax on the sand and enjoy the sounds of the sea.
Anyone looking to get active while on the beach will find the water great for paddling and swimming, while canoes and kayaks are also permitted. It is usually possible to launch a sailing boat from the beach, too, although jet skis are not allowed.
Many guests take the opportunity to explore the whole Kintyre peninsula, and there is much to discover. Many choose to walk the miles of coastline, which is paired in sections with countryside and woodland for a memorable outdoor experience. Campbeltown has a range of quirky shops where tourists can pick up holiday essentials as well as gifts to take home, and is a fun place to visit via a scenic drive. Guests can also drive into Tarbert, found a short drive to the north.
Also found on the peninsula is the Springbank Distillery, while there are numerous locations around where guests can enjoy fishing and golf.
Gigha is the island found two miles off the coast of Kintyre, and is a wonderful place to spend a day with the family. Many guests choose to hire a bicycle and explore the whole island in a few hours, but those preferring the more relaxing pursuits on offer will find fishing and golfing opportunities here, too.
Many tourists staying at the park enjoy touring around the islands off the coast; daily ferry trips operate between most of them while there is also the option of taking island cruises and spending time on them all during the day. Those that don’t mind a longer drive can head to the Loch Lomond National Park and enjoy the woodland and various pursuits that are offered there.
Point Sands Caravan Park is a great place for a family holiday, whether looking for somewhere to escape from modern life or to enjoy a base for getting out and discovering all that the west of Scotland has to offer.
