See Scotland in a day when travelling by camper van

Some say that going to Scotland is like coming home, from mysterious landscapes to enchanting castles, there's always plenty of things to explore. But what can you see in only a day? The answer is simple and that there's a whole load of things to visit. Here are some must-see Scottish attractions while you travel to them in a VW camper van. The Lighthouse The Lighthouse has been described as a 'beacon for Scotland's Creative Industries', with it being the first public commission for Charles Rennie Mackintosh. It is Scotland's Centre For Design And Architecture which also boasts some excellent panoramic views, various exhibitions and hosts some pretty spectacular events. As it's in Glasgow, there will be plenty of spaces where you can park your camper van. Falkirk Wheel Travel to the Falkirk Wheel in your camper van and experience Scottish wildlife firsthand. As it's the only boat lift of its kind out there, it attracts quite a few people. The Falkirk Wheel is the product of masterful engineering and impressive design, which lifts boats between the Forth and Clyde Canal to Union Canal, the first to do so since the 1930s. It has a fancy locking system and can lift boats to an impressive height of 24 metres. The Kelpies Not too far from the Falkirk Wheel when you travel in your camper van is The Kelpies. These horse heads stand at 30 metres tall and are definitely Instagrammable. They are the work of the figurative sculptor Andy Scott and are a symbol showing Scotland's horse-powered heritage. You can find them in The Helix, near the Forth and Clyde Canal extension. People's Palace A truly remarkable structure is the People's Palace, which the museum and glasshouse play host to prints, photographs, historical artefacts and film, each somehow involves Glasgow's people and heritage. The well-known Scottish artist Ken Currie has done several murals for the ceiling dome as part of the refurbishment. There are multiple car parks nearby so finding a place for your camper van shouldn't be a problem. For VW camper van hire Scotland, contact Kelpie Campers today.
