While holidays and mini-breaks are still off-limits, we figured there was no harm in showcasing some campervan inspiration for when it’s safe to embark on your next adventure in Scotland.
A campervan gives you the opportunity to travel without a fixed destination.
Grab your pillows, cameras, and box of tea bags for a limitless journey through Scotland.
Choose your road. It doesn’t matter which one; it could be the A82 through Glencoe or the A9 up to Thurso. Turn on your playlist and drive alongside fields of heather and mountainous landscapes.
Discover otherworldly sights and ever-changing climates as you travel further north. You’ll see sauntering sheep and photogenic highland cows along the way. Don’t forget to stop for photos (where safe).
Travel north or west to the islands to find the most spectacular sweep of cream sand beaches. Turquoise waters combine with crashing waves to create a truly breathtaking sight.
If the weather allows, invigorate yourself by kicking off your shoes and take a walk through the cold waters of the North Atlantic while leaving temporary footprints in the sand.
The beaches will feel impossible to leave behind, and with a campervan, you don’t have to. Park up and enjoy a brew with a view until the cyan skies slide into a stunning orange sunset. No lights, no traffic, no mobile phones. No worries, no hassle, no stress.
Fall asleep to the sound of wind skimming the waves.
Responsible wild camping is legal in many parts of Scotland. View ten of the best wild camping spots in Scotland here.
Wild camping means that you don’t need to book camping sites. Find a suitable spot and politely settle for the night.
You might find that shops, petrol stations, and lights can be scarce in the remote areas of the Highlands, but there’s a true beauty in the quiet calm. Just be sure to pack and prepare accordingly. Oh, and don’t forget a torch–it can get very dark; the starry skies are often your only light.
