Foresterseat Caravan Park: Good-size pitch for twin axles

General

  • Quiet site with country views from every pitch
  • Forfar a 10-minute drive; five minutes’ walk to Murton nature reserve
  • Dog-walking area and underfloor-heated modern bathrooms on site

Looking for a peaceful park in Scotland? There’s more than a wee chance you’ll have a top time at Foresterseat Caravan Park less than 10 minutes’ drive from Forfar in the Five Glens of Angus… this site’s a scenic place for sitting with a beer at the end of the day while looking out across a wild setting. It's an adults-only setup here too, so you'll be guaranteed grownup company and no kids scampering around.

With an extended burnside dog-walking area at the park and Murton’s nature reserve across the road (about a five-minute wander away) for lakeside lopes and birdwatching – or tasting traditional cream teas at the café – it’s also a sweet spot for strolling. The park connects with Chester’s Path leading into Forfar too, meaning the hour-long circular trot to town goes through lush countryside via the nearby golf course.

In the other direction, you can pass lochs like Rescobie and Balgavie on your way to the walled Pitmuies Gardens with their alpine meadows and marked paths or reroute yourself north west to Angus (20 minutes) for bistros and pubs serving traditional Scottish food as well as international fare. You can get grub here or head back towards the site for eats at the restaurant and bar next door.

Other facilities at this well-kept, purpose-built park include a modern shower, toilet and washroom block with underfloor heating to keep toes toasty on cooler Scottish mornings and evenings.

    Everything about the site was perfect. Has to be the best we have stayed at since taking up touring in our van. Keep up the great work...
    P. S. The WiFi was outstanding all round the site. The restaurant behind the site was unbelievable and will get a separate review.

Local attractions

When it comes to culture, Scotland’s got it in spades. For a trip with a historical bent make your way to Glamis Castle (20 minutes’ drive from the park) for a guided tour of a thousand-year-old building that was the childhood home of the Queen Mother or drop by Arbroath Abbey (20 minutes) – another swish old structure to visit – to see the Declaration of Arbroath, arguably the most well-known document in Scottish history.

Go south to Dundee (30 minutes’ drive) for the 15th-century Broughty Castle Museum on the Tay estuary, a place of top views and geography exhibits, or investigate the nation’s modern heritage at The McManus Dundee's Art Gallery & Museum’s gothic revival building.

Once you’ve nodded your head thoughtfully at all the 19th-to-20th-century pieces here, stop by the Verdant Works to learn about the former jute production industry in this part of the world.

Worn out just hearing about all these educational expeditions? You can always get some fresh air in the countryside at The Glens just outside of the city instead…

Must see

  • Glamis Castle (7.1 miles)
  • Carnoustie (11.2 miles)
  • St Andrews Links (21.0 miles)
