You do not need to leave the British Isles to have a memorable holiday, with plenty of destinations in the UK and Ireland offering an enjoyable experience for couples and families at reasonable prices. Scotland is one such location – but just what options are there in this beautiful county for avid caravanners?
If you own a campervan, or are considering buying one, there is a place to stay around almost every corner and Scotland has plenty of suitable parks. Naturally, campervan insurance needs to be thought about, protecting you and your precious cargo wherever you choose to set up home.
A huge part of the reason people go on holidays is for sun, sea and sand. While sun certainly cannot be guaranteed in Britain, we are surrounded by sea and there are beaches in all corners of the country.
The sun problem does not even need to be an issue when you own a campervan; once you see there is good weather on the way, pack your bikini or trunks, climb aboard and head to the coast.
There is guaranteed to be campsites nearby and the Scottish coast offers plenty of attractions for holidaymakers. Some of the top destinations are Ardnamurchan, Small Isles and South Skye Coast or the North Skye Coast and Wester Ross.
The British Isles is full of lakes and nature reserves just waiting to be visited. The natural beauty of the country we live in is ignored by many citizens but with your campervan and many sites nationwide you can have a peaceful break spotting birds and listening to the sounds of nature. Loch Ness and Loch Lomond are well known for their natural attractions.
When you think of a mountain holiday, most people will think of skiing in the Alps or reaching the summit of Mount Everest (if they are adventurous).
However there are mountain ranges in the UK that are great for a short holiday for couples, friends or families. You could stay in a country house in one of the natural parks. Or, better yet, climb in the campervan and visit a motorhome site on location and take trips to see the best of the sites.
Scotland has two national parks: Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, created in 2002, and the Cairngorms National Park, created in 2003.
Almost every type of holiday you can think of can be done in Britain; you just need to do your research and decide where to go. Owning a campervan is one of the best ways to experience what Britain and Ireland has to offer – giving you the freedom to travel where you want, when you want.
