Gallivant to the Gaelic shores around Ryan Bay Caravan Park for a dose of brisk Scottish air so plentiful that you and your wee ones (and your pooch, if you've brought one) will most likely be zonked out night after night…
Pitches here are cannily placed for taking in the bonny backdrop of Loch Ryan, for scenic saunters along Scotland's west coast and for jaunts to the pretty villages of Portpatrick, Glenluce and Kirkcudbright. A 10-minute drive will take you down to Stranraer for restaurants, shops and other urban amenities, or up to Cairnryan to board a ferry bound for the shores of Northern Ireland, a mere 20 miles away.
Day looking a little 'dreich'? (What a splendid word for summing up damp, grey climes.) Use it as an excuse (as if you needed one) to take a whisky tour or stick about on site to admire the sea views and cosy up with a couple of drinks in the clubhouse. Other facilities on site include an outdoor play area to aid with that plan to tire out the tiddlers.
Guests at the park also have access to free heated showers, a covered dishwashing area and Elsan and waste disposal points. There's also a laundry on site for guests’ use and the park is kept safe and secure with CCTV coverage.
Open from 20/07/2020 to 10/11/2020

Castle Kennedy's gardens (10 minutes' drive) are packed with a bountiful array of plants and wildlife to spy - get snug in the bird hides to see what you can see. Kids can dash about beneath the 20 towering and ancient ‘Champion Trees’ and there’s a right royal time to be had exploring the ruins of the sixteenth-century castle.
Sea lovers should certainly skedaddle to Scotland’s most southerly point, the Mull of Galloway (45 minutes’ drive). Climb the 26m-high lighthouse and visit the engine room exhibition to have all your questions answered by the experts. The surroundings are a Site of Special Scientific Interest and RSPB reserve, so when you’re not mulling over Mull’s scenery, you may spot the likes of roe deer, brown hare, guillemots and puffins.
For foodies, The Cocoabean Company chocolate factory is about an hour’s drive east, with kids’ workshops and play areas alongside a swathe of sweet treats. About 45 minutes away is Galloway Smokehouse (in Wigtown Bay) for top-notch smoked Scottish salmon and trout. If you’re on the way back from the smokehouse, Bladnoch Whiskey Distillery’s shop is enroute and it’d be rude not to pop in for a sample of Scotland’s finest to take home…
