Daily Record 20th March 2008 Where Will You Go? Whether You Go Camping Or Caravanning In Scotland Or Jet Off Abroad, This Is A Great Time Of The Year To Take A Break EASTER is the perfect time to think about getting away for a few days to enjoy Scotland at its best. Around this time of year, the weather usually starts improving, so why not get out there and enjoy the dramatic scenery that draws visitors from around the world to our shores? With beautiful mountains, glens, lochs and sandy beaches, Scotland is a top destination for those who love the outdoors and have a sense of adventure. And there is no better way of getting close to nature and taking in the rugged beauty of our land than to undertake a camping, motorhome or caravan holiday. With hundreds of sites around the country, you might need some help selecting your perfect pitch - and that's where Scottishcamping.com can be of service. They've come up with the first comprehensive map and directory showing the location of more than 400 campsites and caravan parks. On its reverse, the map lists the units accepted at each site, contact details and whether dogs are welcome. There is also advice and guidance on wild camping. The map should prove to be the ideal source of information for tent, motorhome and caravan travellers who plan trips in Scotland. Folding down to a handy travel size, and with a protective cover, it is available from ScottishCamping.com - Directory of all campsites and Caravan Parks in Scotland for £5. The website, which was established in 2001, is also an accessible, comprehensive and reliable source of information on Scottish campsites and caravan parks. It aims to provide full information and reviews on all of the official and unofficial campsites and caravan parks in Scotland. Of course, a camping holiday isn't everyone's idea of fun, and thousands of Scots holidaymakers will instead escape the unpredictable Scottish weather by jetting off to sunnier climes. Most families will have organised their Easter getaway months in advance, but there are plenty of last-minute deals to be snapped up for the April school holidays. Perhaps you are considering an Easter break as an alternative to the annual summer holiday or plan to grab an affordable last-minute deal on the spur of the moment. Either way, there are some cracking bargains available, whether you want a week in the sun, a city break or a holiday on the pistes before the ski season comes to an end. Barrhead Travel's last-minute deals start at just £179 per person for a seven-night break in the Algarve, departing on March 29 from Prestwick. There's another unmissable deal to Majorca, which flies out from Prestwick on the following day. If you don't fancy self-catering, consider staying at a four-star resort on a B&B basis in the Algarve for £279 per person (flying out on April 5 or 12) or seven nights all inclusive in a three-star hotel in Costa Brava for just £269 per person.
