Scotland is the perfect place for a great escape, and miles and miles of vast open space is waiting to be discovered. The best way to explore this stunning landscape is with VW camper van hire. Scotland's Kelpie Campers offer two types of camper van for hire: Skye and Brora. Both are fully equipped for your next adventure. Here’s three great reasons to give it a try!
A camper van brings a freedom that few other forms of travel can offer. A ready-made home, equipped with all the necessities, it allows you to simply pull over and set up camp. Scotland has a tolerant stance on wild camping and, providing you respect the countryside, you can largely camp where you choose.
The freedom to travel off the beaten track, without the pressure of having to check in or return to a hotel, is liberating. That’s why camper van hire is so perfect for Scotland. Scotland is remote, wild and fascinating. And its scenery is stupefying. With huge expanses of rural land, wildlife abounds. By hiring a camper van, you can park up where you like and simply observe.
The routes across Scotland are a match for any in the world. The North Coast Highway, or NC500, is 500 miles of spectacular coastal road. Imagine being in a camper van on a road trip that traverses empty, wild beaches, lush scenery and monumental castles.
Scotland is famed for its local produce. Your camper van (with its excellent catering facilities) allows you to enjoy the best that Scotland has to offer. Small towns and villages pride themselves on family run businesses, so drop by and stock up on venison, haggis or fresh salmon. All perfect for a camper van feast!
As you travel, you can always call into one of the many small distilleries. Self-drive whiskey tours are designed to offer the whiskey novice an insight into this ancient tipple. Sampling it in the comfort of your camper van as you’re parked up, looking at the endless starry sky, is just one memory to treasure.
