Set within the historic grounds of Blair Castle and surrounded by the breathtaking landscapes of the Cairngorms National Park, Blair Castle Caravan Park offers spectacular mountain scenery combined with superb facilities. Located only 2 miles off the main A9 trunk road to Inverness, in the picturesque village of Blair Atholl, there are excellent transport links to the nearby historic towns of Pitlochry, Aberfeldy and Dunkeld and plenty of local amenities including places to eat out, shops and visitor attractions.
Our modern two and three-bedroom Caravan Holiday Homes all hold the prestigious Thistle for quality and there are over 200 hard standing and grass pitches across the park with plenty of space to park your vehicle next to your pitch.
The holiday park centres around 9 acres of green open space, a play area and putting green, perfect for family games and a safe place for children to play. The park is home to Segway Ecosse, providing a fun range of Segway tours around the estate and all guests receive discounted entry to Blair Castle and Gardens.
For keen walkers and cyclists, there is a 50 mile network of off-road trails which can be accessed directly from the park and there’s opportunities to go fishing, pony trekking or on a Land Rover Safari into the hills. Animal lovers will love our resident Highland Cows, ducks and native red squirrels which are often seen scurrying around the campsite.
