The top beach sites when hiring a camper van in Scotland

VW camper van hire in Scotland provides a unique alternative to a caravan and is great for travelling if you wish to explore this unique country up close. If you are still deciding where to go, here are the top Scottish beach campsites to visit in your Kelpie Campers van.

Port Ban Caravan Park

Port Ban is located on the Kintyre peninsula near Kilberry with stunning views of the Paps of Jura. The sandy beach gives a secure, family-orientated atmosphere where there is also play equipment for the children. There is a restaurant, cafe and shop on site, but don't miss the opportunity to travel in your hired VW camper van and eat at Kilberry Inn, which is known for its bar meals.

Sango Sands Caravan and Camping

Situated along Scotland's north coast, this caravan and campsite is located upon the cliffs with marvellous views and a beautiful beach. It's inside the village of Durness where the facilities have been recently updated and there's a restaurant on the campsite too. Ceannabeinne Beach is an excellent beach to visit in your VW camper van, while Thurso is a great destination for surfers which also allows you to view the beautiful countryside from inside your VW camper van when travelling to the destination.


Camusdarach is a well-run site with immediate access to the beach. There are lots of things to do nearby, including wildlife boat tours, a journey on the 'Harry Potter' train, or an excursion to Knoydart. The beaches between Mallaig and Arisaig, which offer panoramic views to Rum, Eigg and Skye, should be rated among the best in the UK, especially when driving to them in a hired Kelpie camper van.

While the campsites listed above have direct access to the beach, there are plenty of other beautiful beaches across Scotland that have campsites only a short distance away. Plus, there are limitless possibilities to explore when it comes to choosing a VW camper van hire in Scotland that meets your needs, so book your next relaxing getaway with Kelpie Campers today.
