Where to go on your family getaway?

One of the best things about a holiday in a motorhome is the freedom to go wherever you please. Motorhome rentals offer individuals and families the chance to explore hard-to-get-to locations in a relaxed, comfortable environment. 

However, it’s important to take time to plan your motorhome trip before you set off. This is especially true when travelling with younger children.  

Struans’ motorhomes for hire are conveniently based in Perth, giving families the perfect opportunity to travel around the stunning country of Scotland. Scotland is known for its serene natural beauty, with campervan and motorhome holidays becoming increasingly popular year on year.  

Scotland offers a range of driving routes to choose from depending on what you would like to get out of your motorhome holiday. Choose to travel through the Scottish Highlands, where you’ll find dense woodlands, rolling hills, fascinating historic sites and crystal-clear Lochs.  

Another great option when hiring a motorhome in Scotland is to travel to some of the beautiful Scottish islands. Some of the larger, more famous islands such as Skye are fully accessible by land, whereas others will require you to jump on a ferry. The Scottish islands are filled with white sand beaches, rich traditions and friendly locals.  

You can easily include a few choice islands in your motorhome itinerary, especially if you choose to travel along the West Coast of Scotland.  

The East Coast is another scenic location that is very popular with motorhome travellers. After picking up your motorhome from our depot in Perth, you can easily drive to the Kingdom of Fife, where quaint fishing villages, historic castles and beautiful beaches are found in abundance. The East Coast also provides excellent opportunities for cycling and golfing if you are interested in an active motorhome hire holiday.

What size of motorhome do you need for a comfortable family vacation? 

Of course, the size of the motorhome you decide to hire will be based on how many people you travel with. Struans offers a variety of motorhomes in 2, 4 and 6 berth sizes, meaning you could conveniently travel as a couple, a small family of three or even a family of five! 

Our 4-Berth motorhome hire with a fixed double bed and additional fold-out double is an excellent choice for a family of four. This motorhome also boasts 4 designated seats to make travelling as comfortable as possible for all the passengers. Plus, if you’re eager to take your beloved family pet on holiday, we also offer a 4-Berth pet-friendly motorhome for hire! 

If your family is bigger or you require additional space whilst travelling, our 6-Berth motorhome may be the perfect option for you. With two double beds and two single bunk beds, this motorhome could comfortably sleep five, and stretch to six, although you may this a bit of a squeeze.  

Many families of four choose our 6-Berth motorhome as it gives extra space within the cabin and allows older children to sleep separately in the bunk beds. We also offer a 6-Berth pet-friendly motorhome rental so that large families can also enjoy the joy of holidaying with their family pets.
