Updated: Apr 4

A land so fine, it'll steal your heart away with just one look. And what better way to wander through its splendour than in a cosy campervan, eh? You're not just hiring a campervan; you're unlocking the gateway to adventures untold. From the rugged embrace of the coastlines to the majestic dance of the mountains, Scotland's calling you for a wee bit of exploration.

Here are some of the best campervan destinations in Scotland, with legendary scenic routes and hidden gems to explore...

Scotland scenery views - sea and mountain views

Route 1: The North Coast 500

This first route likely needs no introduction, but we’ll give you one anyway! The North Coast 500 is a circular route that takes you all the way along the Scottish coastline past some of Scotland's most stunning scenery. It's a challenging drive, but the memories you’ll make on this trip are well worth it. 

Along the way, you'll pass through the Highlands, the Outer Hebrides, and the Northwest Highlands. Some of the highlights include the Quiraing on Skye, the Old Man of Stoer on the Knoydart Peninsula, and the beaches at Durness. You’ll also get to visit John O’Groats, the northernmost spot in the whole of mainland Britain!

Plus did we mention that when you hire one of our Tartan-wrapped campervans from our Scotland locations, you will be turning heads along the journey!

Route 2: The Isle of Skye

The Isle of Skye is a must-visit for any motorhome enthusiast. Arguably Scotland’s most beautiful island, this place is a haven for those who love being outdoors, with plenty of hiking, biking, and kayaking opportunities. 

There are also plenty of charming villages and towns to explore, as well as some of Scotland's most iconic landmarks, such as the Fairy Pools, Dunvegan Castle, and the Old Man of Storr. The island is also completely accessible from the mainland, so you don’t need to worry about ferrying your campervan overseas!

route 3: the cairngorms national park

The Cairngorms National Park is probably the most amazing national park in the entirety of the UK, home to some of Scotland's highest mountains, including Ben Nevis, the tallest mountain in the British Isles!

This land is also home to a variety of wildlife, such as deer, eagles, otters and even animals you can’t find anywhere else in the world like the Scottish wildcat. There are plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities here, such as hiking, camping, and fishing.

Hidden Gems

The above routes are all very famous, so if you want some slightly lesser known spots, consider exploring these hidden gems by campervan:

The Isle of Harris

Harris is the largest island in the Outer Hebrides, and it's home to some of the most dramatic scenery in Scotland. The island is also known for its traditional black houses, which are made of peat and stone.

The Isle of Lewis

Lewis is the second-largest island in the Outer Hebrides, and it's known for its white houses and its prehistoric standing stones. The island is also home to the Lewis Chessmen, a set of Viking chess pieces that were found on the beach in 1831.


Glencoe is a stunning valley in the Scottish Highlands that is famous for its dramatic scenery. The valley is also known for its tragic history, as it was the site of the Glencoe Massacre in 1692.

Scotland's not just a place; it's an experience. And with The Tartan Camper, you're set for an adventure that'll etch itself into your heart. So, what are you waiting for?
