Get Away With Campervan Rental Scotland

The best views in the morning

 

For many just the word ‘camping’ sends shivers down the spine and the memories of your childhood holidays come rushing back. However, the other half has fond memories of pitching tents, making campfires, exploring the wilderness and having fun.

If you want to enjoy a break out in the fresh air away from the stress of everyday life, but don’t want to be too close to nature, campervan rental Scotland is the perfect alternative.

By renting a campervan, you get the luxury of being able to travel around and explore, without the need to sleep on the ground in muddy field.

So, why Scotland you ask?

Scotland is the ideal place for campervanning, from stunning coastlines and lochs to the incredible peaks of Ben Nevis, and from the world’s best seafood to Aberdeen Angus beef. Yes, whether you want to sit back, relax and take in the surroundings or get active and ‘bag’ a Munro or hit the pistes, Scotland has it.

Rockinvans campervan rental Scotland is conveniently located in Kilmarnock, Ayrshire – less than 30 minutes from Prestwick Airport and Glasgow, and only 90 minutes from Edinburgh. Once you’re all in your camper and ready to rock, you can start to explore immediately as Ayrshire is the ideal starting point. Famous for being the home county of the National Bard, Robert Burns, Ayrshire also has some of the most spectacular views down the west coast of Scotland.

Beautiful castles

Visit the isles

The western isles of Scotland offer some of the most jaw-dropping scenery in the world, from the incredible backdrop of the Cuillin to picturesque lochs and coastlines. Once you’ve booked your campervan rental, Scotland’s premier ferry operator, Caledonian McIntyre has a fantastic Island Hopscotch ticket. With this ticket, valid for a month, you can explore the islands on a pre-planned route at your own pace.

Go shopping in Glasgow

The beauty of campervan rental Scotland is that you don’t have to spend your days in the countryside if you don’t want to. Less than an hour from the west coast is Glasgow, the shopping mecca of Scotland.

Climb Ben Nevis

Britain’s highest mountain is Ben Nevis at 1344 metres. If you are venturing up to the Highlands in your camper, it is a definite must-see. You don’t have to be the next Bear Grylls to climb Ben Nevis as there is a ‘tourist route’, which is still strenuous, but manageable for the majority of people.

Hit the pistes

Forget the Alps this winter, thanks to your campervan rental Scotland can provide you with a more than adequate skiing experience. There are five main ski resorts: Nevis Range, Glencoe, Glenshee, Cairngorm and The Lecht.
