    Does anyone know if any of the ski resorts in Scotland have Motorhome Parking facilities? All the campsites seem to be 30 or 40 minutes drive away.

    You can park on the Coire Cas Car Park just below Cairngorm (though it might now be a pay and display) but no facilities when the centre is closed. There is also a campsite at Glenmore, open all year, which is just a 10 minute drive from Cairngorm.

    Hi Sandra we spent a couple of nights at Glen Coe ski resort in Febuary although we didn't ski we where sledging. You can use the pitches with hook up as we did or like some other Motorhomes who just parked in the car park for a couple of nights for free. The resort has a pub cafe in the car park and toilet facilities.

    Sandra I seem to remember we had a problem with the website and just phoned them, the pitches are just in front of the log cabins and as I said folk parked up on car park and the pitches weren't full so I think you can stay there.

    There is a hotel at just north of the entrance that has a hostel and large car park maybe give them a call and see if you can sleep there.
