Forestry and Land Scotland has been working, with the approval of the Scottish Government, to open up their car park network for overnight parking for campervans and motorhomes.
The trial is now in operation and for the remainder of 2020, motorhomes and campervans will be allowed to park overnight at a small selection of Scottish Forestry and Land car parks.
Campervans and motorhomes must be fully self-contained with their own toilet facilities as there are no facilities at the car parks.
There is a maximum stay of one night allowed at any one car park.
There is information on the trial, and a map & list of the car parks where overnight stays are allowed, on the Forestry and Land Scotland website here: https://forestryandland.gov.scot/staythenight
This is part of a national trial to help understand the practicalities of offering this visitor experience longer term. The trial will run until the end of December 2020
Early in 2021 they will assess its popularity, the levels of compliance and of course the impact of the trial on participating car parks and the surrounding environs, and any potential issues that might arise during the course of the trial.
All of this will be taken in to consideration when they make their 2021 pre-season decision on whether or not to extend the trial or to make this a permanent opportunity for visitors.
