Lidalia Caravan Club Site, Newcastleton, Scottish Borders; 21st - 23rd July


HL 21st July

We are now back on Scottish soil!

Our drive from Southport was reasonably good though it took over 4 hours including a break for dog and human (note the hierarchy).

We stayed at Lidalia Campsite in Newcastleton in the Scottish Borders (near Hawick).

The weather remains sunny & bright!

This campsite is well worth a visit. Its an affiliated Caravan Club site and provides excellent facilities. It’s a family run site and they could not be any more friendly or helpful. There are separate male & female shower and toilet blocks, both with inclusive shower rooms - spacious and spotless. The setting is wonderful,  and the hardstanding pitches are large and well laid out. Some have water and grey waste drains.

The local butcher on the main street of Newcastleton sells the most enormous fresh eggs that tasted like we used to remember eggs tasting in ’the olden days’ - nom, nom! 

We had a fabulous dinner in the Grapes Hotel in Newcastleton from an excellent, varied menu and wine list. Excellent value for money; one we can highly recommend. 

This is definitely a place and campsite we will return to.

Our Campsite score - 90%
