Escape to Scotland

Back to News and Inspiration

Historic cities, picturesque glens, pristine sandy beaches, rippling lochs and ancient traditions. Scotland is one of the world’s most popular holiday destinations and for good reason.

With variety many countries could only dream of, there is almost nothing you can’t do – it even has its own ski resorts!


But with summer well and truly here, attention turns to how to spend the warmest months in scenic Scotland.


You can find our holiday homes and lodges on a whole host of parks, stretching almost the length and breadth of the country. We have picked out some of our favourite Scottish escapes to give you a taste of how to spend your upcoming holiday, while staying in a Victory.


Corriefodly Holiday Park


Corriefodly is equidistant from Perth and Dundee and sits just south of the Cairngorms National Park – the UK’s largest national park.


A popular spot for winter thrill-seekers, the Cairngorms is also ideal on warmer days. Remarkable wildlife like red squirrel and birds of prey such as raptors call the park home, as do the Royal Family.


The late Queen Elizabeth II spent every summer at Balmoral and the castle and grounds are open for the public to visit.


Just nine miles up the road, Braemar Highland Games Centre provides a complete change of pace. Home of the Braemar Gathering – the most famous Highland Games event – the centre shows off the history of sports like caber tossing and tug of war. The centre, complete with café, is open all summer and the annual event takes place on the first Saturday of September.


Ben Nevis Holiday Park


Set in one of the UK’s most iconic locations, it is no surprise Ben Nevis Holiday Park is so popular.


In the shadow of the UK’s tallest mountain, the park is just three miles from Achintee – home of the Ben Nevis Visitor Centre and start of the simplest route up.


Just up the road, Fort William is regarded as the ‘Outdoor Capital of the UK’ with activities like hiking, sailing, rafting, quad biking and archery all available in the town. And if taking part is a bit much, then why not time your trip to coincide with the UCI Downhill MTB World Championships?


The mountain biking event is taking place across Scotland this August and will feature a stage in the stunning Nevis Range – it’s one of the sport’s most iconic descents and is not to be missed!


And, speaking of unmissable, Fort William is also just 30 miles from the southern end of Loch Ness meaning a glimpse of the monster can’t be out of the question.


Crofthead Holiday Park


Far from Scotland’s rugged north, sit the rolling hills of its southern uplands. This area, which contains the likes of Dumfries, Kelso and Lockerbie, has some of the country’s most amazing, undulating terrain, as well as some of its best beaches.


Crofthead is located less than four miles from one of Scotland’s most impressive – Ayr Beach. With views of the Isle of Arran, Bute and Northern Ireland beyond, Ayr is the perfect spot for sandcastle-building and is great for children.


Ayr Racecourse is just outside the town centre. The venue for the annual Scottish Grand National has hosted racing for more than 100 years and is regarded as one of the UK’s best racedays.


And if your need for speed is even greater, why not check out the first International Ayr Show – Festival of Flight? The free, three-day event will feature a whole host of aircraft - including the iconic Spitfire and Red Arrows - take to the skies above Ayr, with the main flypasts set to take place on Saturday 9th September.
