4 highly recommended holiday parks within a 2 hour drive of Glasgow.

The school summer holidays are creeping closer, which means sun (we hope), visits from the ice-cream van, and maybe even a little getaway.

You don't have to travel far, or spend a small fortune to do this; sometimes the best memories are just around the corner.

Here are four local holiday parks that come highly recommended, and are within a 2 hour drive of Glasgow Centre.

They all have a fantastic choice of caravans and lodge holiday homes, and many of them welcome pets so your furry friends can join in on the fun too!
