They're known and loved across the country, but now fans of the Tunnock's Caramel Wafer can take a holiday in one - as Argyll Holidays have a specially designed caravan.

Featuring the iconic gold, red and white branding, the Tunnocks caravan wafer is located on the Drimsynie Estate in Lochgoilhead.

Posting on their social, the team said: "INTRODUCING our brand new Tunnock's caravan at Drimsynie Estate!

"We've teamed up with our favourite fellow family owned Scottish business to create the first ever Tunnock's Caravan Wafer.

"Who can see themselves on holiday here enjoying a caramel wafer and cuppa?"

Inside the modern, three bed caravan, guests will find Tunnock's Caramel log and teacake cushions by Scottish designer Nikki McWilliams, as well as other Tunnock's accessories.

The listing for the caravan reads: "With a modern and cosy lounge area, a well-equipped kitchen and spacious bedrooms, this is the perfect place for a staycation to remember.

"Admire the Tunnock’s design and the view from outdoor seating on the balcony. Private parking is included."

Tunnock's fans have responded warmly to the design, with one asking if a caramel log caravan would be next.

The company was formed by Thomas Tunnock as Tunnock's in 1890, when he purchased a baker's shop in Lorne Place, Uddingston.

Tunnock's ships to more than 40 countries worldwide and is very popular in the Middle East.

Caramel Wafers are a big hit in Kuwait, where they are known as 'boy biscuits’ after the face of the Tunnock's boy (who has never been named) on the box.
