Welcome to Glasgow and West of Scotland DA (GWSDA)

General Campsite View

Glasgow and West of Scotland DA is a District Association of the Camping and Caravanning Club, commonly referred to as the friendly club.

Glasgow and West of Scotland DA is a fantastic, fun and friendly way to get the most out of your club membership, meeting up with old friends and making new ones, whilst enjoying camping in some fantastic locations.

We meet on many weekends throughout the season on Club Sites and run temporary holiday sites as well.

A temporary holiday site is longer than a weekend can be a week to a month, these are generally in a field somewhere, your own sanitation is essential on these sites. However these meets are a very economical way of camping with a community spirit at the heart of them.

We look forward to seeing you whether its for a night, weekend or longer, we welcome all campers, those who use tents, trailer tents, caravans or motorhomes. Some of our meets require booking, you can find this information on the Out n About App, Out n About section in the magazine, here on the Website and or Facebook page.

We also have many youth campers who enjoy the benefits of Youth activities including Skiing, Paddle-boarding, Hiking, Curling and Youth only weekends at home and abroad. Contact us to find out more.

If you are new to DA camping, please make yourself known when you arrive on site, where you will be guaranteed a warm welcome and will soon be making new friends.

Temporary Holiday Sites (THSs)

Throughout the year GWSDA hosts a number of THSs. These are meets that don't rely on Club Sites and are organised by the DA with the land owners to provide an area to camp together. Often these meets require you to provide your own facilities.
