This unique guide shows and tells you about the campsites, camping and caravan parks and holiday parks with sea views around Scotland, the Highlands and Scotish Isles. Whether hiker, biker, kayaker or glamper, Sea View Camping Scotland has the perfect campsite for you. With sites ranging from the largest holiday parks near major cities like Edinburgh to small, community-run camping parks less than 200 miles from the coast of Norway, all you have to do is decide where you want to go and be ready for a fantastic time as you explore the lochs, forests, moors and mountains.

Wild camping is still possible in Scotland, but there are also small, intimate campsites littered across the islands which are run by the islands' close-knit communities. These sites offer basic campsite facilities surrounded by stunning scenery and rare wildlife. You can truly get away from it all and enjoy camping at its purest on the Scottish Islands, surrounded only by nature and your own thoughts.

Users of RVs and 5th wheels should find it easy to navigate the wilds of Scotland as 121 camping parks accept large vehicles and our directions detail the easiest route even for large vehicles. Sea View caters for glampers too as 79 camping and caravan parks have rentable accommodation, like yurts, static caravans, teepees, B&Bs, hostels, hotels and camping pods.

How does Sea View work?

Barry Crawshaw inspected each camping park and its facilities and, as is typical of all Vicarious Books guides, the entries give you all the information you need to choose the right campsite.

The map at the front of the entries lists the camping parks numerically starting with 1 on the east coast of Scotland near Edinburgh, moving anticlockwise around the Scottish coast and ending at the Scottish border near Glasgow. You can see an image of the map by clicking this link, or the link under the main image above, to look inside the guide. The entries are listed in map number order at the front of the guide and in alphabetical order in the index at the back of the guide.

Each entry has an image of the sea view from the campsite or holiday park. Following that is a written description of the sea view and details of the layout of the campsite and what sort of ground the different pitches are on (i.e. hardstanding, grass, gravel, etc). Also described are points of interest, amenities in the local area and the ease of beach access from the site. The symbols complement this information by telling you how large the site is (number of acres) and how many pitches there are, whether there is electricity and what amperage it is (where known) and lastly whether there are level or hardstanding areas.

Typical campsite symbols highlight what facilities are onsite. For example, toilets, designated disabled toilets and facilities, showers, family bathrooms, dishwashing areas, washing machines and wastewater and toilet waste disposal points. Also given are symbols denoting when slipways, pubs, shops, swimming pools, children's play areas and walking/cycling trails are located on or near the campsite (distances are given where appropriate in the information underneath the symbols).

Each camp site is priced according to our sliding scale from £-££££. Prices were determined using the price for two people in a motorhome with electricity during August. The symbols also detail whether the campsite allows dogs, whether it's adult only, members only, is a CL (Certificated Location) or CS (Certificated Site) and whether the site has an internet point or WiFi.

At the bottom of each entry clear directions are given as well as GPS coordinates taken at the holiday park entrance. These directions should be suitable for all vehicles and are written in clear, easy to understand language with signs and landmarks noted. For walkers, hikers and cyclists, the OS grid references are also given. We stock Ordnance Survey leisure maps for Scotland. Lastly, the opening dates of the campsite are written at the bottom of each entry.
