Fromtheeditor All set

Fromtheeditor All set for a cracking Christmas! THE CLOCKS HAVE gone back, the nights are fair drawing in and Christmas is just around the corner. It’d be easy to give in to temptation, get the slippers on, turn up the heating and hibernate in a cosy cocoon with hot chocolate and box-sets until spring. But where’s the fun in that? Here at Scottish Caravans & Motorhomes, we’re determined that touring can be a year-round pursuit. There’s certainly no reason why it shouldn’t be. More caravan and holiday parks are open in winter than ever before. Modern vans and motorhomes are superbly insulated and have fantastic heating systems. And even if camping is your bag, the latest materials mean gear is lighter and cosier than ever before – although admittedly, you do need to be that wee bit hardier to sleep under canvas at this time of year! As you’d expect, we at Scottish Caravans & Motorhomes walk the walk… or should that be drive the drive? Anyway, we’ve been busy out and about reviewing the best holiday parks and campsites around Scotland and the north of England, as well as testing loads of 2018-model vans and motorhomes SAVE OVER 20%! 4 ISSUES PLUS ANNUAL PARKS GUIDE, £16* PLeASe QUOte SCM04 FreePHONe 0800 318 846 8am-6pm, Mon-Fri and 9am-5pm Sat *Four issues of Scottish Caravans ans & Motorhomes, plus Annual Parks Guide for only £16.

It’s our mission to inspire you to get out there and explore. But it’s not all hard work. This issue I was lucky enough to review a luxury holiday property at the Mains of Taymouth estate. It came complete with a spa bathroom, including its very own sauna, as well as a beautiful four-poster and a roaring log burner. Perfect for those cosy nights I mention above. You’ll find out just how much I enjoyed myself on page 76. They say you can have too much of a good thing, so I paid for all that comfort with a night wild camping deep in the mountains in our far north west. Obviously it was incredibly beautiful. But it was also incredibly cold – it even snowed during the night. Still, it was great fun. Find out all about it on page 82!

The UK’s historian for all things caravans, motorhomes and holiday homes, he has authored eight books on the subject, with three more to be published in 2017. Testing cars, caravans and motorhomes since 1992, Andy also consults on his subjects and has appeared on TV and radio. Bob Mather Bob has been a caravanner for 45 years. While operating one of the busiest touring parks in Scotland in Forfar, he and his family launched the Scottish Caravanner magazine and guides. Well respected by manufacturers, dealers and the park industry, Bob was instrumental in persuading DC Thomson to launch Scottish Caravans & Motorhomes. He is thrilled to be retained as a consultant and hopes the touring fraternity will give the new magazine the support he enjoyed. Candy Evans Candy bought her first and only caravan in 2001 as a way to take her then-small daughter on adventures. She sold it a few years later when a new-found career in journalism meant she had the privilege of being paid to test new caravans and motorhomes on a regular basis. Candy’s been busy reviewing lots of new caravans and motorhome models for us – you can read her fantastic in-depth live-in test of the Adria Adora on page 12.
