Scottish campervan trip idea

Hiring a campervan for a Scotland holiday means you are free to travel to the far corners of this rugged land. Its possible to reach the Hebrides, where there are some great campsites. Glasgow to Oban, then on to one of the  Hebridean islands is a popular route. Oban lies just 3 hours north west of Glasgow.  Loch Lomand National Park is a definite attraction of this first day on the road. Escaping the urban sprawl of Glasgow and breathing the fresh open air will invigorate you and leave you wanting to explore more from being the wheel of your campervan.

The Isle of Mull is a fantastic place to see Scottish wildlife such as eagles and otters, whales and dolphins. The Isle of Mull (not to be confused with the Mull of Kintyre, home of Paul McCartney!) has some secluded bays and very peaceful hinterlands.

A well known travelled road brings you to Arisaig (featuring some great campsites along the Mallaig Road, the scenery in this part of the world is mesmeric.

It’s also worth taking the ferry to the Isle of Skye, an island rich in history and tradition. The famous Tallisker distillery is open for visitors, though be sure someone else takes to the wheel of the campervan afterwards! The island is steeped in Gaelic history and is home to some stunning mountain scenery perfect for the intrepid hiker to lose a few hours.

  1. Isle of Mull is a great place for wildlife, but has nothing to do with Paul McCartney who had a house on the mull of kintyre which is somewhere else entirely.

    It’s all single track, narrow, winding roads on the island. Rather you than me driving a van.

  2. Sorry Neil, that’s clearly an error that we’ll amend!
