Hi everyone, this is to inform you that I have been elected as your BCC - Scotland Chairman at the 2017 AGM. I look forward to your continued support.
Please follow local and BCC signs when near to a site and note that BCC Scotland cannot accept liability for the route chosen by your Satellite Navigation System.
As written in the British Caravanners’ Club Constitution: ’Each British Caravanners’ Club Member is issued annually with a ‘Record Card’. Members are invited to lodge a ‘Record Card’ with an area of their choice, which will ensure full voting rights with that Area. It would be helpful therefore if all Scotland Members could complete the record card attached to this programme and send it as soon as possible to the A/C (see address list at front.) All record cards received by the 28th February 2018 will be entered into a prize draw which will take place at the AGM.
The use of generators is permitted by BCC Scotland on all sites with conditions: ie. must not run for more than 4 hours at any one time between 9.30am and 6.30pm, they must not be left unattended at any time and consideration must be given to neighbours.

We normally camp on greenfield sites.
Fresh water is provided although you are expected to bring you own sanitation with you this is usually required though disposal provision for same is provided.
On short meets 3-5 days, it is normal practice take your rubbish home, as skip hire etc is expensive and would add considerably to your costs. THS's usually have arrangements made for Dry-Waste, and some recycling is practised.
Electricity is not provided though is sometimes available on commercial sites, which are used on occasion, if this is the case bookings must be made at least 2 weeks before the meet.
BCC Scotland requests that generators
Where their use is permitted :- Are not used prior to 0900hrs and that they are switched off after 1830hrs.
Please run your generator for no more than 4 hours at any one time and be considerate to your neighbours.
Generators must not be left unattended at any time, and if so, will be switched off.
Exemptions to this rule are if required for medical reasons (i.e. use of nebuliser or similar).(contact Meet steward)
This restriction does not apply to generators being required for social events or other prearranged functions for thebenefit of allmembers.
The organisers do have the discretion to allow use of generators outwith these hours for emergency or other required use.
This was agreed upon unanimously by the Members at our meeting 28 February 2009
Pets: Club rules apply, dogs, cats and rabbits, etc must be on a lead at all times and this to be no more than 2 mtrs long. Please clean up after your pet.
Children are more than welcome and we have a few ways of keeping them amused some of the time. We even can come up with a competition or two.
Unattended Kids unless by prior arrangement, will be kept amused and will be given coffee and a pet to keep, till reunited with their parents.
PUP tents; please advise the duty steward if you wish to pitch a pup tent next to your unit so that safety protocols can be observed. No need to do so if pitching inside awning.
Pitching of tents: Tents are of course allowed on our sites and a suitable pitch will be found for them relative to the size of footprint. Standard cost pun. applies.
Staying at a Meet, Temporary Holiday Site or on a Certificated Site?
If so, here are the guidelines you should expect to follow.
Club Meets and Temporary Holiday Sites
1. It is assumed that all Members will be familiar with the Campers and the Caravan Code which can be found in the Club Handbook.
2. Club Meets are open to Members only.
3. Temporary Holiday Sites are organised for the benefit of Members.
Non-Members may join on site and are also permitted to stay in
a Member’s unit upon payment of a one off Guest Fee, plus a small nightly
4. All Club camping events will have at least one appointed Steward
who is responsible for Members’ behaviour and safety during the event.
5. Proof of Club membership is to be shown by all Members attending
camping events when properly requested to do so by the appointed Steward.
6. Campers must not arrive before the published opening time and
must not occupy the site in the absence of the appointed Steward.
To do so is outside the provisions of the Club’s Exemptions under
which Club Meets and Temporary Holiday Sites are held.
7. All Members, upon arriving on site, should report to the appointed
Steward before pitching their unit.
8. If a Steward feels a Member’s behaviour, or the behaviour of a
Member’s children or pets, is causing a nuisance, the Steward is
permitted to ask a Member to cease the behaviour or leave the site.
9. Common Sense & Safety Rules on Site
All vehicles are restricted to 5mph on site, this includes all bicycles, and
learner drivers are not permitted.
No balls or games near caravans and awnings, or the Club marquee.
No smoking in the Club marquee.
No pets in the Club marquee.
10. Units, excluding guy ropes, must be 6 metres apart from the
adjacent units. This is a precaution against fire. Vehicles may be
parked between units, provided that a 3 metre clear space is left
within the 6 metre gap at all times.
11. Children’s pup tents are classed as an integral part of a camping
unit, in the same way as an awning, when they are occupied by
children and when no appliance with a naked flame is used in or
close to them. This means that a child’s pup tent is not required to
comply with the 6 metre rule and can be pitched close to the
12. Open fires are not, in general, allowed except with the permission
of the Steward and in an agreed location. Barbecues should also
be agreed with the Steward and sited well away from any
13. It is strongly recommended that all camping units are equipped
with a suitable BS/EN3 approved fire extinguisher or fire blanket,
and that members should be aware of how to use the one they
have. Buckets of water placed outside units are also useful as
near-to-hand fire fighting equipment.
14. It is advisable that each member’s unit be equipped with a First
15. The use of gas cylinders with a capacity greater than 15kg is not
permitted at Club events for supplying touring caravans, motorhomes,or
The 'Big Sites' book, free to members from the Club, gives further information and explains the Outdoor access code for the different parts of the UK.
We normally pitch our units in the following manner:
Caravan, Awning, Car - with the peg or marker at the offside (right) front corner of the unit. Different rules apply for foriegn makes of vans/& M/homes with the door on the "wrong" side.
Now you know the basics we look forward to you joining us at one of our meets.
