Touring breaks in Scotland and why Rosneath Castle Park is the perfect place for a stopover

Rosneath Castle Park is rated five-star by the Scottish Tourist Board and is the ideal base for discovering nearby Loch Lomond, the copper-coloured hills of Argyll and the Scottish Highlands. The touring park season runs throughout the year from March to the end of January and prices start from £35 per night with prices remaining the same throughout the school holidays.

If you don’t have all the facilities you need in your motor home or touring caravan, there is no need to worry. The touring pitches at Rosneath have access to a new modern wash house with four shower bathrooms and a separate modern kitchenette preventing the everyday problems of who’s using the bathroom first if the whole family have come on the trip! There is an on-site shop with all your essentials in case you do run out or have left anything at home, also a handy, coin operated, onsite laundrette.

Staying in your own accommodation on one of our touring pitches doesn’t mean you miss out on any of the onsite luxuries and activities. Make the most of the lock-side setting by enjoying a spot of fishing or if you prefer being on the water why not try sailing at the onsite water sports centre.


As well as having the freedom to stay in and cook whatever you want, the on-site Castle Isle Bar and Restaurant offers a range of high quality, tasty food, and selection of drinks with the added option to take-away. The bar also has occasional weekend entertainment, so you never need to venture far for an exciting evening.

The touring pitches are pet friendly so the whole family can experience the together including your four-legged members (maximum of 2 per pitch). With many incredible walking trails and beaches nearby there won’t be a dull moment for your furry friends either.

Not only is there lots to keep your pets entertained, but the children too and we are confident the youngsters in your party will love the Fun Zone! It offers a wide range of fun, supervised activities including arts and crafts, indoor and outdoor games, woodland walks, beach walks, beach cleans, kids’ bingo, BBQs, rock pooling and much more (children under the age of 7 must be accompanied by an adult over the age of 18 while at the fun zone). Not to mention the indoor and outdoor play area’s providing hours of amusement while you can have some well-deserved time to chill nearby. Having all of this onsite means you never have to worry about travelling or getting back to your motorhome/caravan whenever you’re ready.
