Cash­ing in on car­a­vans

The Oban Times - - News -

CARAVANERS are help­ing the Scot­tish econ­omy to grow, ac­cord­ing to the Car­a­van Club.

Club mem­bers spent £ 37 mil­lion off­site in 2016 – an in­crease from £ 35m in 2015.

The in­crease sup­ports the equiv­a­lent of more than 680 full-time jobs in Scot­land, up from 650 in 2015. Plus, the Car­a­van Club’s net­work, in­clud­ing the smaller, pri­vately- owned cer­tifi­cated lo­ca­tions, ac­count for more than two mil­lion tour­ing bed nights per an­num.

Th­ese sites are lo­cated in some of the most beau­ti­ful parts of the world, such as North Ledaig Car­a­van Club on Ard­muck­nish Bay, near Ben­der­loch.
