MSPs are to stage a special meeting at a Gypsy-Traveller site.
Holyrood's Equal Opportunities Committee believes that where Gypsy-Travellers live is often at the root of many problems that they face.
As part of an inquiry into this, the committee will hold its discussions at the Clinterty site near Aberdeen on Monday.
MSPs have already visited such sites in other parts of Scotland but this will be the first time they have held a formal meeting at one.
Committee convener Mary Fee said: "It is fitting that we hold our committee meeting at Clinterty Gypsy-Traveller's site as it gives us the opportunity to see where the community lives, in an area of Scotland that has already generated a lot of public interest on the subject."
MSPs on the committee have heard from site managers, Gypsy-Traveller liaison offices, community councils, the police, the health service and local councils during their inquiry.
Some community council leaders have told MSPs that in some problem areas local people are left angry at the mess apparently left behind by Gypsy-Travellers.
In other places where established groups or well-managed sites exist, few problems, if any, were described.
Earlier this month Sheila Chambers, vice-chairman of Cockenzie and Port Seton Community Council, highlighted local concerns about mess left at unauthorised sites.
Gypsy-Travellers "have not got a very good reputation. In particular, it is the mess they leave behind that is worrying. This has cost East Lothian Council a considerable sum of money to deal with. Some of the mess is offensive," she told MSPs.
