    In Glasgow, does anyone know if it's possible to arrive and park a motor home in it's car park or are there height barriers in place ?

    From the Car Parking Page - "The multi-storey car park has a height restriction of 1.9m. All oversized vehicles are advised to park in the car parks at the west of the SECC."

    Wot Graham said.

    It was very well sign posted last year. Just keep in the lane for the west car parks.

    I used to attend this show every year without fail until about 6yrs ago. The car parking was at best shambolic & at worst illegal. My wife has MS & is disabled, we called ahead to ask about disabled parking to be told the usual story of "disabled parking space is limited" which is fair enough, but everytime we got near the door, we found that exhibitors were camped in the disabled bays. Then the last time we tried the car parks were gridlocked & very poorly organised. We found it was actually easier to attend the show at the NEC where the staff were actually helpful!!

    Never had a problem though don't know about disabled parking. An area is set aside for motorhomes and we are always directed there. Not going this year though, too much on just now.

    I think we'll go in the car as there may be snow on Drummochter and the Slocht again. We nearly got stuck up Drummochter last week due to snow and an accident.

    plenty of parking for all types of vehicles, but for a price. you can park nearby in such as quayside then only a short walk.
