The Benefits Of Exploring Scotland in a Motorhome This Winter

Scotland attracts visitors from all around the world, 12 months a year. There are many winter tourists – and also some natives – who have a strong desire for winter sports, hill walking, exploring forests, mountaineering, water sports, photography, fishing or simply visiting landmarks of historical and cultural interest. For them, appreciating stunning scenery and the innocent wonders of nature are far more important than whether or not you can get a signal on your mobile phone.

Hiring a motorhome is the ideal vehicle and accommodation combination if you’re setting out to explore the back and beyond in Scotland during winter, whatever the reason.

Escape from everyday life

As long as you’re fully wrapped up, a visit to Scotland can be the perfect escape from the stresses of working life. Think total freedom, blissful peace and quiet, random adventures and the sight of stunning snow-capped mountains. Think nature, wildlife, dark skies, deserted beaches and of course there’s the considerable benefit of out of season motorhome hire prices! Prices that top hotels and guest houses simply cannot match.

Experience the freedom of Scotland in comfort and style

There are many attractions, activities, events and places to visit in each of Scotland’s magnificent regions, that can be thoroughly enjoyed for free. It’s no secret that the Scottish weather is unpredictable, especially during the winter. You can very often see all four seasons in one day, in fact often within an hour, but don’t let that stop you. With a luxury motorhome, you can explore the length and breadth of the country at your leisure without ever worrying about the weather or indeed, giving up any of your necessary home comforts. Even parked up in the middle of nowhere, you’ll always be dry, warm and have immediate access to a toilet, shower, and cooking facilities. 

Have a comfortable base for your adventure

As well as the more obvious on board facilities, our luxury motorhomes have plenty of storage and drying space for all your outdoor gear should you happen to return from your endeavours, all cold and wet. So, whether you’re taking leisurely strolls, birdwatching, scaling Munro’s or hitting the slopes in one of Scotland’s five ski resorts, you’ll never have to worry about your outdoor equipment. And, perhaps more importantly, you can prepare a hearty dinner in advance and have it waiting for you when you get back tired and hungry – an essential for any adventure base!

Look to be flexible

When your slightly lost or you’ve taken an unplanned detour, having accommodation on wheels makes it wholly possible to holiday the way you want and at your pace. You can drive to the next town or simply park up on the other side of the nearest mountain to keep your holiday moving if the weather closes in, or your curiosity and intrigue changes your driving plans. Travelling in winter only increases your flexibility as well; as you’ll get the pick of many campsites that tend to book up well in advance in summer time. 

Enjoy a midge-free meal

There’s nothing quite like the wonder of a Scottish star-filled sky at night. With the freedom of a motorhome, you can visit one of Scotland’s dark sky parks or simply find a quiet spot away from the madding crowd to enjoy a spectacular view. And, you can do so without fighting off the pesky midges that plague Scotland in summer. Light up that campfire, pour yourself a wee drink and have dinner outside. Or, curl up inside. With a quality motorhome, the choice really is yours!
