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.

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.

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.

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.
