Everybody wants to go to Scotland. Its history and the customs of the Scottish have been epitomised in film, art and popular culture for many years. Think about Scotland and what images do you come up with? Tartan, cashmere, shortbread, whisky, golf, lochs, mountains, wilderness, folk music. And the list goes on. Luckily, thanks to its relatively small size and great road network, Scotland can be toured easily. Staying in hotels or taking a train to get around is both time consuming and costly. The best way to see the country at its best is to hire a motorhome in Scotland.

The idea is simple. You arrive into Scotland by land, sea or air and collect a motorhome hire vehicle to continue your journey on with. Where you travel is up to you. It is a good idea to check a map before arriving so that you can plan a sensible route. Online maps are available for free, just type "map" into a search engine to find one. Everything can be found online these days and if you're booking an overseas holiday then this is the cheapest and easiest way to find yourself a great deal. Price comparison sites are great but sometimes a search engine is your best friend. Most campsites have websites these days, or are listed on camping websites. Once you've calculated a sensible route, you can hire a motorhome in Scotland by booking online. Simply enter your hire dates and location to get a list of available vehicles along with inclusive prices. Motorhome can is booked online using a credit or debit card, just like you would do with a hotel or flight.

You can select a motorhome model to fit in with your requirements. For example, if you're a couple you may prefer a fixed rear double bed which saves you the hassle of making up the bed each night. A family may benefit from a 6 berth with rear bunk beds which are ideal for children. A good hire company will provide layout images and details to help you make an informed choice. If in doubt, send them an email or give them a call to answer your questions.

When you hire a motorhome in Scotland, you can benefit from bearing in mind a few useful tips. Firstly, if you're travelling in the summer, take some insect repellent with you. Although not known for its warm weather, Scotland can be plagued by midges in the warmer months. Also, an umbrella, waterproof jacket and wellington boots will come in handy if it rains. You should be able to pay for fuel, shopping and attraction entry using a credit or debit card but it is a good idea to bring some cash for campsite bills and other small purchases. If you are travelling to remote area, there may not be many cash points available so ensure that you have some emergency money kept safe. Similarly, keep an eye on the fuel gauge to ensure you do not run out in a rural spot.
