The new Scottish Caravan & Camping Show is returning for a second year, bigger and better than before.

Following a highly successful debut last year, the two-day event – which also features the Grampian Outdoor Leisure Show – will again be held at the Thainstone Centre, Inverurie on Friday and Saturday, June 15 -16.

Show organisers ANM Group were delighted by the response from both the public and exhibitors and have confirmed it will now be an annual event on the UK leisure show circuit.

Last year’s event, which attracted more than 8,000 visitors, proved to be such a hit that it is now being referred to by the trade as the Northern Show.

Once again, the main show will be sponsored by one of Scotland’s leading caravan dealers, Dyce Caravans of Aberdeen, who this year are celebrating their 25th anniversary.

There is also a new sponsor for the Grampian Outdoor Leisure Show in Busy Outdoors. This business opened at Kinellar near Aberdeen and has quickly grown into one of the country’s top retailers in caravan, camping, boat and motorhome accessories.

An official rally campsite will also be held over the show weekend run by Scottish Caravanner magazine and supported by the Caravan Club. It will have full facilities and electrics while those using the campsite will also be able to attend the famous Thainstone Sunday Market.

The show is the only one of its kind to be held north of the Central Belt and the organisers believe that stay-at-home outdoor holidays have never been more popular.
