Inspiration: Explore Scotland by Caravan, Motorhome or Campervan

Whether you choose to tour or to pitch up on your favourite site, Scotland has something for every kind of camper.

Here’s some of our favourite places that we think you might like to explore, too!

 

Assynt

Assynt is tucked away in the far North Western corner of Scotland, surrounded by the Point of Stoer, Kylesku, Elphin and Inverkirkaig. The village of Lochinver is the largest settlement and home to almost 400 people, with a scattering of coastal townships including: Inverkirkaig, Achmelvich, Clachtoll, Stoer, Clashnessie, Drumbeg and Kylesku.

Inveraray

Overlooking the still waters of Loch Fyne, Inveraray is one of the jewels of Argyll.

Established in 1745 by the 3rd Duke of Argyll, head of the powerful Clan Campbell, the town is an absolute set piece of Scottish Georgian architecture. Key buildings that are worth visiting include the neoclassical church, and Inveraray Jail and courthouse, now an award-winning museum that graphically (and sometimes gruesomely) recounts prison conditions from medieval times up until the 19th century.

A short walk north of the New Town, the neo-Gothic Inveraray Castle remains the family home of the Dukes of Argyll. The castle is set in extensive grounds which contain a number of marked walks, the most strenuous of which rises over 800 feet to the tower atop Dun Na Cuaiche from where there is a spectacular view over the castle, town and loch.

The town is also great gateway to the Highlands & Islands and provides an excellent base for day touring.

 

The West Coast between Oban and Fort William

Kate, Garry and their dog Arwen have a new Elddis caravan to pitch in their favourite spot at Benderloch, just north of Oban

You might also want to spend some time driving along the West Coast. The stretch between these two towns offers some of Scotland’s loveliest spots, including Appin and Castle Stalker on Loch Linnhe and Glen Coe.

Oban makes a brilliant touring base and you could spend days exploring castles, gardens, villages, beaches, forests, and fun and unusual attractions, from the power station hollowed into a mountain at Cruachan, to boat trips where you can spot basking sharks and a host of other sea life.

Oban itself is compact and it's easy to get round on foot. There are plenty of small galleries and independent stores to browse through, as well as the centrally-located local distillery, chocolate shop, and museum. Wander along the seafront to the ruined Dunollie Castle and the sandy beaches beyond - the sunsets here are phenomenal. When it's time to relax or refuel, take your pick from the town's offering of pubs, cafés and restaurants.

There are plenty of things to do, too, in and around Fort William. Take your time and explore the natural wonders of Lochaber, breathe the fresh mountain air and marvel at some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. You could climb Britain's highest mountain Ben Nevis, explore the wilds of Ardnamurchan and the West Highland Peninsulas, the cinematic landscapes of Glencoe or take a stroll by the sea along the Road to The Isles, with magnificent sunsets over the Isles of Rum, Eigg, Muck, Canna, Skye and the wilderness of Knoydart.

NC500 – the ultimate Campervan roadtrip!

There's nothing quite like the freedom of the long open road. Never-ending back roads, wide meandering country tracks and beautiful bends through some of Scotland's finest coastal scenery are just a few things you can expect along the North Coast 500. Strap yourself in for the road trip of a lifetime.

The NC500 starts in the northern city of Inverness, weaves along the west coast to Applecross and then northwards towards the towns of Torridon and Ullapool. From there, you'll venture to some of the most northerly coastal points in Scotland, passing by Caithness and John o' Groats before heading south again through Dingwall and finally back to Inverness.

Torridon

Torridon is a must if you love the great outdoors. In a dramatic and desolate setting beneath the mountains, on the shore of Upper Loch Torridon in Wester Ross, you’ll find some of the most spectacular trails and vistas.

The area is packed full with great walking paths including the magnificent ridge walk along the Liathach massif, or the strenuous traverse of Beinn Eighe. A rewarding lower level walk is the 7 mile hike up the coast from Lower Diabaig, 10 miles north west of Torridon village to Redpoint.

Applecross

Applecross is not the most accessible of places, but its remoteness is part of its charm. If you’re after peace and quiet and the feeling of getting away from it all, this is the place to go. But keep in mind it’s only accessible via two roads. One of which is the coast road from Shielding and the other is Bealach na Ba, otherwise known as ‘Pass of the Cattle’, which reaches 2053 feet high making it one of Britain’s highest roads.

Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park

Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park falls into four distinct parts: Loch Lomond, the Trossachs, Breadalbane and Argyll Forest.

The largest freshwater expanse in mainland Britain, mountains loom to the north of Loch Lomond, while a scattering of islands can be found at its south. Pretty villages such as Luss line the loch’s western shores. Loch Lomond should definitely make it onto your to-do list. Experience quintessential Scotland and relax along the shores of this mighty loch.

 

Cairngorms National Park

So, you want to get away from it all? Looking for extraordinary things to do that will thrill you? The mighty, majestic Cairngorms National Park is the place for you.

Mother Nature dealt the Cairngorms a hand full of aces. Twice the size of the Lake District, the Cairngorms National Park has more mountains, forest paths, rivers, lochs, wildlife hotspots, friendly villages and distilleries than you can possibly imagine. Five of the UK's six highest mountains also lie inside the park, alongside 55 Munros - mountains over 3,000 ft.

Reconnect with nature and recharge your energy amongst huge forests of ancient native trees, cascading waterfalls, and more wildlife than you can imagine.

If you're looking for a true hidden gem, don't miss the beautiful historic region of Badenoch just south of Aviemore. Discover its stunning scenery, and some fascinating stories shaped by the mountains and rivers at the heart of the Cairngorms National Park. Here you will find everything from ancient fortresses, wildlife and distilleries to some of the best attractions and museums.

And the magic doesn't stop at night. Bless your lucky stars at the new Tomintoul & Glenlivet - Cairngorms Dark Sky Park, the most northerly Dark Sky Park in the world, and the darkest in the UK.

 

Isle of Mull (ferry crossing required)

This large Inner Hebridean island is full of many incredible possibilities, whether you are going for a day trip or staying a fortnight. Visit the charming town of Tobermory with its coloured houses and independent businesses and explore miles of stunning coastline with amazing wildlife. No matter what the Isle of Mull weather is like, you can experience the perfect island escape.

To the west of Mull, there are some exciting discoveries to be made. The tiny, enchanting Isle of Iona is a peaceful haven, while you can discover one of Scotland's geological wonders on a boat trip to Staffa. Mull is an ideal place to spot sealife, and in the summer months, you might even get up close to a puffin or two, or behold the incredible sight of thousands of breeding seabirds on the nearby Treshnish Isles.

 

Isle of Skye (no ferry needed)

Francesca enjoyed the tranquility - and the views from her Compass campervan! - when she toured the Highlands

There’s no need to catch a ferry to the Isle of Skye as you can drive there, over the bridge!

Wildlife fans will want to spot the dolphins, puffins, seals, whales and otters that make Skye their home.

Dunvegan Castle is a must visit, as is the Mealt Waterfall and Coral Beach. Whisky fans will want to stop by the Talisker Distillery.

If there's one thing about Skye that'll leave a lasting impression on you, it's got to be the scenery. Just driving around, you can see many of Skye's most majestic geological features, such as the Old Man of Storr, the Quiraing and the Cuillin. But be sure to take your sturdiest of boots and explore these unique sights on foot for the real rewards.

 

The Black Isle

The Black Isle is a peninsula in the Highlands of Scotland, located north of Inverness.

Contrary to its name, the Black Isle is not an island. It is in fact a peninsula, surrounded on three sides by expanses of water, with the Cromarty Firth to the north, the Beauly Firth to the south and the Moray Firth to the east. From Inverness, it’s reachable by crossing the Kessock Bridge.

Cromarty, located at the north east tip of the peninsula, is distinguished by its Georgian merchant houses and quaint fishermen’s cottages. In the summer the village is connected to Nigg, which lies across the Cromarty Firth, by ferry.

Overlooking the Moray Firth, Fortrose is the largest of the Black Isle’s towns and lies close to Rosemarkie, a small village with a beautiful beachfront. Also situated on the coast is Avoch, a fishing village characterised by neat little lanes of cottages running down to a historic harbour.

Scout, aka Travels with a Boxer Dog is loves nothing more than a trip to The Black Isle with her humans in their Elddis caravan!

In the west of the peninsula is Beauly. At the heart of this riverside village lies a peaceful 13th century ruined priory and a pleasant village square.

One of the region’s great draws is its pod of resident bottlenose dolphins. At Chanonry Point, in between Fortrose and Rosemarkie, they can often be seen frolicking in the Moray Firth.

The Black Isle boasts two RSPB nature reserves. Fairy Glen, an enchanting wooded glen with tumbling waterfalls, is home to woodland songbirds and delicate wildflowers while Udale Bay provides a habitat for migratory pink-footed geese.

The Black Isle is great for both mountain bikers and leisure cyclists.

 

Kirkcudbright

Kirkcudbright is a harbour town on the Solway coast that has always been popular with artists.

Kirkcudbright (pronounced kir-coo-bree) sits on the banks of the River Dee and is the only town on the Solway coast with a working harbour. It’s an attractive town with a colourful blend of medieval, Georgian and Victorian buildings. Kirkcudbright became a magnet for Scottish artists in the late 19th century and is today known as ‘The Artists' Town’.

 

MacLellan's Castle is a ruined 16th century tower house by the harbourside and nearby is Broughton House, a smart Georgian townhouse which was once the home of the artist Edward Hornel. The house has some impressive Japanese gardens.

Other town attractions include the Tolbooth Art Centre and Harbour Cottage Gallery. There is a supermarket, alongside some great places to eat out around town. There are many independent shops to browse as well as a monthly farmers' market which showcases the area's best local produce in the Town Hall.

 

Dunbar

The town of Dunbar is on the North Sea coast of East Lothian, about 30 miles east of Edinburgh. The town is renowned for its high sunshine record, rugged coastline and attractive countryside. It is steeped in history and was one of the most important Scottish Fortresses in the middle ages.
