VW Camper Van Rentals in Scotland
Lose yourself in the magic of the majestic hills and lochs of Scotland with a campervan rental holiday. Scotland is a unique, diverse country – by hiring a vw camper van you can see it in a way no other holiday can show you.
Scotland offers some breathtaking sights for the camper van holidaymaker. The purple covered hills of the Highlands are truly magical: just the opportunity to drive through them and admire the spectacular views is enough reason to recommend hiring a camper van as the best way to see this part of the country. Visit Loch Ness to go in search of the fabled monster, and see the stunning colours and mysterious ghostly shapes of the Northern Lights. In the summer you can visit the Highland Games to throw a hammer or toss a caber, and all year round there is a huge ranges of activities from sailing and scuba diving to rock climbing and walking trails. Many of these places are remote, so having a vw campervan is a great way to be able to spend time in them without having to take long day trips from the towns outside the higher regions.

There’s historic Edinburgh with its distinctive architecture and the iconic Edinburgh Castle, seat of the kings of Scotland from the 12th century to 1603. The rugged hill of Arthur’s Seat towers over Holyrood Park – if you have time, leave your camper van for a day and spend it climbing this peak for fantastic views of Edinburgh and out to the Firth of Forth.
But with campervan you don’t have to limit yourself to a particular region of Scotland: everything is within striking distance if you have your own transport, and you can see the many sides Scotland has to offer.
