Updated: Apr 4

Ah, Scotland! A land where the lochs mirror the sky, and the highlands whisper tales of old. We're here to guide you through the mystical lands with your trusty steed - here is your guide to hiring a campervan in Scotland!

You're about to embark on an adventure that's as thrilling as a night out in Glasgow but with fewer hangovers and more breathtaking views.

So, buckle up, we're going on a journey to discover the essentials for your Tartan throne on wheels!

Lockie - Our VW Tartan Wrapped Campervan


First things first, navigation.

You might think you know Scotland like the back of your hand, but even the locals get lost in the beauty of it all. Bring a satnav, or ask for one when you hire a campervan in Scotland, because sometimes it's the unexpected detours that lead to the best stories.

Music and podcasts are next.

Imagine cruising through the Glencoe Valley with the tunes blaring and the stories flowing. It's like having Billy Connolly in the passenger seat, except he won't eat your snacks.

Speaking of snacks, let's talk about the tech toolbox.

Portable chargers, adaptors, and power banks are a must. You don't want to miss capturing the moment a Highland cow blocks your path because your phone's dead, do you?

Comfy Companions

Now, onto bedding.

Our campervans come with cosy insulation and bedding, but an extra blanket never hurt. It's Scotland; the weather's more unpredictable your old Dad's jokes.

Board games, books, and a wee picnic set are essential.

Nothing beats a roadside stop with stunning views, a cup of tea, and a game of cards. It's the simple pleasures.

For the Adventurous Soul

If you fancy a hike, which we highly recommend, don't forget your gear. Sturdy boots, a waterproof jacket, and a sense of adventure are crucial.

And a torch! (We're pretty sure your phone will have one.) You don't want to be caught in the dark, telling ghost stories without one.

Lastly, a first-aid kit. It's always better to be safe than sorry, especially if you're exploring the rugged beauty of the Highlands.

So, there you have it, folks.

With these essentials and a Tartan Campervan, your Scottish adventure is set to be epic.

And if you're still in need of a van, give a shout to the Tartan Camper Company. Let's hit the road, soak up the scenery, and create memories that'll last a lifetime.

Scotland's waiting for you!
