Are there any rules stopping a member from taking their caravan to a club site in say the Scottish Highlands and leaving it on site unattended for a couple of nights whilst doing a 3day/2night NC500 tour using B&Bs??

I'd want to let the wardens know, incase they'd thought something had happened to us......🤔

 I wonder how many actually bother doing that. Very few I would guess.

Fortunately ours merely states the security devices previously agreed by them should be in force if the caravan is left unattended.

Good point though.

For our caravan, I don’t know about just a couple of days. However, when we had a 3 month seasonal I had to pay a supplement. That was because ours was normally stored in a gold standard compound. Our insurance then was with the CAMC before it became cover. Our current MH policy with Comfort says we can store it away from the compound (ie outside our house) for 48 hours. If more we have to inform them.

We insure our caravan with the CCC and have, stipulated on the documents, our storage and our driveway as  places we keep our caravan. There is no limit on the time it can be kept at home.

Why not opt for a CL instead of a Club Site? Lots of folks we camped alongside on a Cornish CL used to turn everything off for a couple of days and visit Isles of Scilly. You’ll still need to pay for the nights you don’t stay, but cheaper than a Club Site.

I’d be realistic though about the NC 500, and any of the other heavily marketed “must do” routes. You won’t see much of Scotland nose to tail with the thousands of others who seem to have this as their “must do” this year. Each area of Scotland deserves time spent in it to fully appreciate it.
