White sand, crystal clear water… you’d be forgiven for thinking you were in the Caribbean, but no, this really is Scotland. Nestled on the Isle of Mull (you’ll need to get the ferry over), this remote campsite backs right onto the beach, so expect to be lulled to sleep by the sound of waves. Spend your days exploring the rugged coastline and spotting wildlife like dolphins and eagles, and bring your bikes and kayaks to get off-road and discover the remote corners of this already far-flung island.
Shhh... can you hear that? No, it’s not your noisy neighbours. It’s the call of the great outdoors, and it’s telling you to grab a tent and get the heck out of the city. And where better to immerse yourself in nature than the great British countryside?
Wild, lush, and dotted with brilliant pubs, the UK could not be more perfect for camping. Up and down the country you’ll find everything from lengthy walks to incredible coastlines, fairytale forests to awe-inspiring National Parks. And the best thing about camping in the UK? There’s something for everyone, from back-to-basics pitches in the back and beyond of Scotland to sunny seaside meadows in Cornwall.
The hardest thing (aside from putting the tent up) is choosing a campsite. That’s where this list comes in. We’ve put together a round-up of superb open-air stays, including a vineyard in Devon stocked with all the cider and wine you could wish for and a remote beach-side campsite on the stunning Isle of Mull. So swot up on your campfire songs and get ready to sleep under the stars, these are the best places to go camping in the UK.
