Tummel Valley Holiday ParkFavourite
Early risers may discover deer grazing outside their windows at Tummel Valley Holiday Park, near Pitlochry in Perthshire. Buried deep in the Tay Forest Park, this 'away from it all' site is great for wildlife, with red squirrels scampering around the leafy surrounds, the occasional elusive pine marten, and plenty of bird life on the river.
There are a small number of pitches for caravans and motorhomes, with good facilities, particularly for younger children: kids' clubs for ages four to ten, a decent-sized indoor pool that runs tots and water sports sessions, crazy golf, all weather sports courts, arcade games, an adventure playground and a charming duckpond for a spot of pond dipping.
Adults, meanwhile, will appreciate the sauna and solarium, picturesque nature trails and fishing opportunities nearby. Another highlight is a drink or meal on the outdoor patio of the Riverside Bar and Restaurant, which enjoys glorious views over the River Tummel. In the evenings, the venue livens up with cabaret, competitions and live music.
There’s a small shop and launderette on site, but you’ll need to head into nearby Pitlochry for more substantial provisions.
Nearby attractions and activities
You could spend several days walking and cycling the beautiful Tay Forest trails around Tummel Valley Holiday Park, taking in the glens, rivers and lochs of Highland Perthshire. Top of most visitors’ list is the awesome vista over Loch Tummel from Queen’s View: cheeky Queen Vicky claimed it was her visit which inspired the viewpoint’s name, but according to the locals, it was actually named after Queen Isabella, the wife of Robert the Bruce, hundreds of years earlier.
Three miles north of Pitlochry is a stunning National Trust of Scotland site, the Pass of Killiecrankie, where the plunging river gorge is skirted by an imposing Victorian railway viaduct.
Other ideas for day trips include: Blair Atholl Castle, at the edge of the Cairngorm National Park - an eighteenth century beauty whose grounds include a folly-filled walled garden, woodland adventure playground and sculpture trail; the lochside village of Kenmore, where you can visit Scotland’s oldest inn to inspect the poem that Robert Burns carved into the fireplace; and the Fairtrade town of Aberfeldy, home to Dewar’s World of Whisky, perfect for a bit of souvenir shopping.
