All of this can be done in the comfort of a motorhome hire in Scotland! 

This blog is your guide to planning the perfect family holiday in Scotland, allowing you to enjoy the freedom of the open road, the beauty of Scotland's natural landscapes, and the joy of quality time with your family.

So, sit back, relax, and read on so you can prepare for the adventure of a lifetime! 



Benefits of a motorhome during the holidays 

While many families go on regular road trips, how often do they go on a motorhome adventure? This unique experience is a journey that everyone will treasure, and it's more than just a typical vacation; it's an opportunity to bond with your loved ones in an exceptional and unforgettable way.  

Here's why a motorhome holiday is an adventure worth embarking on: 

1. Memorable and unique 

Just like we’ve mentioned before, a motorhome adventure offers a unique twist to your regular vacations.  

Exploring Scotland's stunning landscapes, waking up to breathtaking views, and enjoying the freedom of the open road are experiences that stand out and create lasting memories.  

2. Quality family time

In the hustle and bustle of daily life, finding quality family time can be a challenge. A motorhome holiday allows you to escape the daily grind and immerse yourself in the beauty of Scotland.  

Whether you're gathered around the campfire, playing games in the great outdoors, or sharing stories under a starlit sky, you're making memories that are both precious and shareable. 

3.  Disconnect to reconnect

Now, if one of your goals is to disconnect from the world dominated by screens and technology, a motorhome adventure is a chance to get away from the digital world and reconnect with nature and your family.  

It's the perfect setting for meaningful conversations, laughter, and adventure! 

4. The flexibility factor

With a motorhome, you have the flexibility to change your plans on a whim. It’s not just about the scenic holiday destinations you’ll visit, it’s about the journey itself.  

This way you’ll have more spontaneous detours, unexpected discoveries, and the sense of freedom that a motorhome adventure brings without having to worry about your itineraries.  

5. Pet-friendly fun

Don't forget your furry family members!  

Struans' pet-friendly motorhomes mean your pets can join in the adventure. Their excitement and joy in exploring Scotland's outdoors will make for heartwarming posts that your fellow pet-loving friends will adore. 

6. No flights and hotel bookings 

One of the most significant perks of choosing a motorhome for your family getaway is saying goodbye to the hassles of flights and hotel bookings. With a motorhome, you have your cosy home on wheels, ready to roll at your pace. No need to worry about airport security lines or hotel check-in times. Your journey begins as soon as you hit the open road! 

When you choose a motorhome for your family getaway, you unlock the freedom to explore some of Scotland's most stunning destinations. From the tranquil shores of Loch Lomond to the rugged beauty of the Isle of Skye, and the picturesque Scottish Highlands to the charming streets of Edinburgh, your motorhome adventure can take you to places you've only dreamed of.  

7. Embrace the great outdoors

The natural beauty of Scotland is at your doorstep when you choose a motorhome adventure. Whether you're looking for picturesque lochs, rugged mountains, or lush green valleys, Scotland has it all. Park your motorhome in the heart of these stunning landscapes and wake up to the great outdoors. Enjoy breakfast with a view, go hiking, or fishing, or simply relax in nature. There's no need to rush. Take your time, explore, and let your family bond amidst Scotland's beauty.

Planning your family motorhome adventure 

Starting on a family motorhome adventure in Scotland is an exciting prospect, and the planning process can be a breeze with the right approach.  

Here are some valuable tips from us at Struans to help you kickstart your journey: 

1. Route planning: Scotland boasts a wealth of scenic routes and picturesque campsites. Research and plan your route ahead of time, but also leave room for spontaneity. Sometimes the most remarkable discoveries happen when you follow the road less traveled. 

2. Pack smart: Motorhomes offer the convenience of a home on wheels, but space is limited. Pack efficiently, ensuring you have all the essentials without overloading. Cooking utensils are provided by Struans, and if you haven't booked a bedding pack, you can still get bedding from us too! 

3. Outdoor essentials: Scotland's weather can be delightfully unpredictable, so it's essential to pack clothing suitable for various conditions. Ensure your family has layers, waterproof, and comfortable footwear to adapt to changing weather and terrains, so everyone stays comfortable during your adventure. 

4. Basic repairs: While it's unlikely that you'll encounter major issues, having some basic repair skills can be handy. Familiarise yourself with tasks like changing a flat tire or fixing minor electrical problems, just in case.  

Remember that Struans Leisure is just a phone call away to help you through any issues, providing you peace of mind while you're on the road. We also provide quality motorhome servicing for vehicle owners.
