Exploring Scottish highlands
We literally cannot think of a better way to explore the Scottish Highlands than over the course of a few days in a campervan. Camper hire Scotland gives you the freedom to go wherever you like, so you don’t have to stick to the usual tourist trail.
Many of the roads up north and towards the west are long and winding, but don’t actually have much to show you. We know you want to spend time in your camper hire Scotland, but we think the more time you can spend sight-seeing rather than driving, the better.
Rockin’vans camper hire Scotland is based in Kilmarnock, Ayrshire, just a few minutes’ drive from Prestwick Airport. From Kilmarnock, it’s a three hour drive up to the Cairngorms, but you could make the most of your camper hire Scotland by stopping off in Glasgow, Stirling and Perth along the way.
Glenmore Caravan and Camping Site
There’s a great campsite, Glenmore Caravan & Camping Site, located right on the sandy banks of Loch Morich, which is ideal for spending your first night. The views are pretty spectacular and because of the natural surroundings, don’t be surprised to spot some wildlife.
Climbing to the Cairngorm summit is achievable for most people within one day, but make sure you have the appropriate gear with you. If you want to avoid the trek, head up on the mountain railway instead. There’s a couple of wild camping spots too if you want to spend a night in the wilderness.
This 18th century bridge crosses the River Findhorn, linking Braemar to Fort George. The bridge stands 60 feet above the water and is a very impressive sight. There are plenty of picnic spots if you fancy parking up for a bite to eat or even climb down to the river to take in the view.
Landmark Forrest Park
Landmark Aventure Park
In Carrbridge, you’ll find Landmark Adventure Park, which is a fantastic place to visit in the Highlands. From rollercoasters to exhibitions and climbing towers to wildlife, you’ll find something to entertain the whole family here. It’s great fun, but often overlooked by Scotland’s main theme park, M&Ds.
If you’re looking for somewhere to park up your Rockin’van camper hire Scotland, head north towards Nairn, where there is a campsite situated amongst the forest and nearby the sandy beach.
Cawdor Castle was made famous by Shakespeare’s MacBeth, but that’s not the only reason to visit, it’s also has beautiful gardens, a ‘Big Wood’ and a pitch and putt golf course.
Whilst you’re in the area, head up towards Randolph’s Leap, where you can take the popular walk towards Logie Steading. If you don’t have too much time to explore, you can always enjoy the same trail in your camper.
Although a very popular tourist spot, it would be a real shame to miss out on a trip to Glenfiddich Distillery whilst up in the Highlands. Visits to the distillery are free, but to really make the most of your visit, book onto one of the many tours.
The Scottish Highlands is vast, not just limited to Fort William and John O’Groats, there are loads of places to visit. We can only imagine how many people miss out on these fantastic spots because they’re too afraid to steer their camper hire Scotland away from the usual
