Introducing young children to camping can be a tricky proposition. Make it rough and ready, cold, wild and wet enough to make an experienced camper happy and you may put them off for life. Make it all too tame and organized, in paved over holiday camps with amusement parks attached and you may be put off vacationing with your kids for life.
And then there's the matter of how far from civilization you want to get. With young children, you'll need to be close enough to emergency services - even when some of those emergencies are just dry, fun places to go on rainy days.
The banks of Loch Lomond may be the perfect answer. The area is so beautiful it may make you cry. Camping facilities are tranquil and varied yet family friendly. There's plenty to do. And when you've had enough of roughing it, it's about 40 minutes to Glasgow for the wonderful, kid-friendly new Riverside Museum.
