Campervan and Motorhome Hire Scotland
While we are big advocates of having an adventure in Scotland, there is a lot to be said for stopping to smell the roses. Yoga is all about having a calming mind and that’s something we believe everyone could with more of. Plus, it’s only a couple of days until the school summer holidays properly begin. So, there isn’t a better time for the parents of Scotland to try and cram in a more relaxing trip. Whether you have kids or you don’t, you deserve a relaxing trip to recharge for the second half of the year. Our campervan and motorhome hire in Scotland offers the perfect opportunity in which to relax in some of Scotland’s most relaxing locations.
To make your serene getaway even more relaxing, we’ve decided to take all the stress of finding locations away. We’ve prepared a small list of calming places in Scotland to visit with our campervan and motorhome hire to get you started.
If you want a quiet trip away with our campervan and motorhome hire in Scotland, you’re not going to get much quieter than a visit to Orkney. We’re not going to lie, it’s a wee bit of trial to get there. However, it is so worth it. The mainland is the main island of Orkney, but there are other small islands that you could visit if you so desired. Not that you’d really need to, the Mainland has a lot to offer. Here, you’ll be able to visit a number of significant archaeological sites and see a variety of wildlife. For those who find historical and mysterious monuments peaceful, the Orkney islands will be perfect. It is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site due to its fascinating array of tombs, stone circles and Neolithic monuments. It’s the perfect location to visit with a campervan as it means you’ll have a guaranteed place to sleep. Just drive your rental vehicle to Scrabster and you can get a ferry to Stromness.
Galloway Forest Park, Dumfries and Galloway
For some, the most serene experience possible is just lying back and looking up at the stars. Unfortunately, light pollution has somewhat ruined this experience for most city dwellers. Which is why our campervan and motorhome hire in Scotland is the perfect opportunity. Scotland lucky enough to have a location that is perfect for viewing the night sky. Galloway Forest Park in Dumfries and Galloway has been honoured with the highly coveted Dark Sky Park status. These protected places are about as minimally affected by light pollution as possible in an inhabited area. To enhance the experience, the park even contains two powerful telescopes in the Scottish Dark Sky Observatory. It’s a relatively easy drive, making it a stress-free journey all around.
Jura, Inner Hebrides
Perhaps a serene trip for you is one full of inspiration. This secluded island must be full of inspiration as it is known to be the location in which George Orwell wrote his famous novel, “1984.” It is the perfect place to write a novel. It is a very quiet place to be; with the island only having 196 inhabitants. While you probably won’t find the time to be able to write a full best-selling novel while enjoying our campervan and motorhome hire in Scotland (feel free to prove us wrong), you’ll certainly be able to enjoy the quiet ambience. If you’re wanting to keep to a more relaxing trip, we’d advise staying away from the Corryvreckan whirlpool, otherwise, you should be fine to enjoy a peaceful time away.
These are just a small sample of the many stunning locations the dwell within Scotland. There are so many more waiting to be discovered. If you truly want to get into the spirit of yoga day, why not use our campervan and motorhome in Scotland to visit one of the countries many yoga retreats?
