A Guide To Motorhoming in Scotland6:26
Travelling by motorhome is a great way to see the country, touring miles of famous tourist routes and trails along the way. It’s also an easier way to plan your travels on the open road, as you can stop off and move on whenever you please. A staycation is a great way to explore what your own country has to offer, and can be the perfect holiday choice if you’re on a budget, but still want to have an incredible experience.
Our video guide covers all the things you need to know for your motorhome adventure around Scotland, along with essential information on how to keep the landscape looking as magical as ever.
It’s always a good idea to plan ahead. It avoids disappointment and ensures there are the right facilities and accommodation waiting for you. If you are thinking of travelling to various parts of Scotland, it’s good to know which attractions, locations, campsites, facilities and car parks are open again, and which places are closed to the public before you venture out.
If you are travelling in a motorhome or caravan around Scotland, it is always advised that you use official campsites or designated overnight parking areas. This will help preserve Scotland’s natural landscape and reduce as much disruption to local resident areas as possible. There are hundreds of campsites in scenic coastal or beach spots across the country, complete with facilities and docks for your motorhome.
One of the biggest rules of touring in a campervan or motorhome is to respect your surroundings. Before you head off, it’s a good idea to brush up on your knowledge of the Scottish Outdoor Access Code, remember - take only memories and leave no trace.
