£1 million plan for caravan site

THE CARAVAN Club is to invest a total of £1 million into a town site.

A programme of upgrades has been put together for the park at Forfar Lochside, as the club is looking to boost its tourist numbers in the area.

The award-winning and picturesque site on the shores of Forfar Loch has a total of five acres of flat, grassy park offering 70 pitches for both touring caravans and motor homes, and saw substantial improvements made to facilities last year, which included new paths and electrics.

It brings the total number of club sites in Scotland to 30, with another 121 smaller certificated locations also in the network.

The club has introduced a flat-rate fee which is on offer on some Scottish sites to entice members to more remote and scenic locations.

Caravan Club member and television wildlife presenter Simon King said: “No other accommodation gets me into the heart of the action with so much comfort. Scotland offers an abundance of wildlife that can be seen among some of the most stunning scenery.”

The organisation’s Queen Elizabeth Park site in Stonehaven is to open this summer, having been constructed at a cost of more than £1.5 million.

The Caravan Club’s product development 
manager Ellen Shotts said: “The Caravan Club is delighted to be investing these levels of funds in the two sites in order to ensure that each one meets the high quality and standard of all our sites across the network.”

For just £43 per year, holiday makers can enjoy access to a great range of caravan sites, benefits and special offers.

And because the Caravan Club is a membership organisation, your membership fee goes directly into improving the services that the club have on offer to its members.

Mrs Shotts added: “The Caravan Club offers are great news for both the Scottish tourer and those visiting from further afield.

“It’s hoped that even more Caravan Club members will have the opportunity to enjoy the wonders of Scotland as a result.”
