Routes

Scotland is a country of varied landscapes, from the dramatic mountain ranges of the Cairngorms National Park to the charming fishing villages of the east coast, the rolling hills of the Borders and the breathtaking islands of the Hebrides and Western Isles

The only way to truly soak up the beauty of Scotland is through the freedom of a Motorhome holiday.

Explore at your own pace, go where you please, all with the flexibility of your hotel on wheels! 

We have pulled together a few of our favourite routes here, all of which are truly delightful! Or you can also check out Scotland's 12 National Tourist Routes at VisitScotland. These routes are designed to provide travelling holidaymakers with a scenic alternative to Scotland's main trunk roads and motorways.

The line up includes the 96 mile Galloway Tourist Route from Gretna to Ayrshire's Doon Valley, the 45 mile Perthshire Tourist route from Dublane to Ballinluig and the stunningly scenic North and West Highland route, which winds 140miles from Ullapool to John O'Groats.

From the Motorhome Rental Centre's Glasgow base, we're just a short drive to the Borders and Northern England, so if you decide to head south rather than north, we have also included a route around the Lake District National Park to whet your appetite.

We love to hear our customers' top tips and their favourite motorhoming routes so if you've had a great trip and would like to share your experiences - and any good photos - with us, please do get in touch at enquiry@motorhomerentalcentre.com.

Oban

I favour a campsite called North Ledaig North Ledaig, and recommend booking in advance http://www.northledaigcaravanpark.co.uk, I like this campsite because it is on a bus route which in turn lets you visit the Oban distillery based in the centre of Oban and allow you to sample the whiskys with no concern about driving. Oban is beautiful and next to the ferry terminal is a boardwalk where small portions of freshly caught fish can be boat cheaply and served on paper plates sitting outside – it is wonderful!

St Andrews & Crail

Both St Andrews and Crail are amazing bases for the East Neuk of Fife. St Andrews Holiday Park is large campsite on the main bus route and offers a nice walk to St Andrews Cathedral and Castle and of course the Old Course. Take in St Andrews, Crail, Pittenweem, St Monans and Ellie. Park up in St Andrews or Crail and use the 95 bus, it runs all day through these coastal towns.
