Planning your adventure: Tips and destinations

Before you hit the road, a bit of thoughtful planning can elevate your Scottish adventure from memorable to extraordinary. 

Here are some golden rules of campervan travel and a curated list of the best destinations in Scotland to make sure your journey is as enchanting as the landscapes you'll encounter.

5 golden rules of campervan travel

  1. Flexibility is key in campervan travel. While having a plan is crucial, the ability to adapt enhances the adventure. Plan your route but allow room for spontaneous detours. After all, the unexpected often leads to the most memorable experiences.
  2. Respect for nature and fellow travellers is paramount. Leave no trace, adhere to designated parking areas, and be mindful of noise levels. By embracing a considerate attitude, you contribute to the preservation of Scotland's breathtaking scenery.
  3. Preserving the pristine landscapes of Scotland is a shared responsibility. Always dispose of your litter responsibly, leaving the beauty of nature untouched for more generations to see and enjoy.
  4. Scotland's landscapes can be delicate, and fire safety is of utmost importance. Follow fire safety guidelines, use designated fire pits where provided, and ensure your campfire is completely extinguished before leaving.
  5. While rules are essential, the ultimate goal is enjoyment. Revel in the freedom of the open road, immerse yourself in nature, and let the beauty of Scotland captivate your spirit.
