There is a reason why Scotland won the most beautiful country in the world in 2017, as voted by Rough Guide’s readers. Wild landscapes, castles, glens and lochs. If you’re heading to Scotland you really are in for a treat. Its North Coast 500, starting in Inverness and meandering around the north coast is the UK’s very own Route 66; an epic journey of adventure. This is what puts a campervan trip in Scotland so high up on people’s bucket lists.
Scotland really does have everything – mountains, lakes, woodland and even gorgeous turquoise sea with white sandy beaches (yes, that’s right! If you don’t believe us, feast your eyes on these). Its seafood and whisky are arguably the best in the world and go perfectly together after a day of hiking and exploring, or even just relaxing and watching the world go by.
Scotland is famous for having legalised wild camping. Although the same laws don’t apply to campervans, the fact that it is relatively unpopulated makes finding a place off the beaten track a breeze. However, if you prefer to plan it out in advance, here are the best ways to find the perfect campsite or official park up.

There are 3 options for pick-up. As well as convenience, you will also need to consider availability and the specific requirements you have, e.g. for a family camper, dog-friendly or a motorhome with toilet/shower etc.
