Safe and courteous Driving on your Campervan road trip Scotland

We love being part of the thriving Scottish tourism community however we also feel responsible for its continued success and would ask that you read through information on Safe and Respectful driving around Scotland as well as safe disposal of both grey and black waste. As a responsible hire business we are members of CAMPA, the “Campervan and Motorhome Professional Association” and would ask that all our hirers read the following links on their website to ensure anyone hiring a campervan or driving a campervan around Scotland drives with courtesy and respect.

Informal Camping on your campervan road trip Scotland

Scotland is renowned all over the world for its beautiful wilderness. Informal camping in a campervan or motorhome has different regulations to wild camping (which is camping in a tent) and therefore there is not a right of access to camp anywhere. However, there are a number of informal camping spots where you can enjoy the wilderness and the quietness and wellness that can be found there. If you are looking to have some informal camping nights on your tour and escape the crowds of a campsite, please read more about this on the CAMPA website. The freedom that Scotland is famous for must be respected and understood by campervan and motorhome tourers in order for us to not only respect the local communities around Scotland, but also enable our freedoms to continue. We love informal/wild camping and in order to ensure that we may all continue to enjoy this freedom we ask our campers to follow these simple steps:

Booking Ahead

Many areas in Scotland are now requesting that you stay only in organised campsites or designated overnight parking spots. You should pre-book these pitches with plenty of notice. Please do not park in passing places, verges or on our iconic coastal machair (grassland).
