Edinburgh Motorhome Rental, Scotland
Compare RV Rentals and Campervan Hire in Edinburgh
Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland and one of the most desirable destinations in Europe for its physical beauty, colourful history, well-preserved architecture and legacy, and buzzing pub culture. It is only second in population size to Glasgow, but is Scotland’s most visited tourist destination. The ease with which to get in and out of Edinburgh from wherever in the British Isles also make it an excellent launching point to explore the rest of Scotland by Edinburgh motorhome rental or campervan hire.
Edinburgh Castle and the Old Town
Edinburgh is the city most visited in Scotland by tourists, with Edinburgh Castle being the most popular attraction in Scotland. The city is renowned for good reason as it has an abundance of sights to see. There are plenty of RV campgrounds surrounding Edinburgh within a 30-minute driving radius, so you can leave your Edinburgh motorhome rental there and make quick jaunts to the city by day.
The Old Town is highly walk able with plenty of cafes and surrounding leafy parks to provide refreshments and respite. Make your first stop at the Palace of Holyrood House, the home of the Queen when she visits, and the Royal Mile that links the castle and the palace and is the centre for the Old Town. Also stroll down the Princes Street, home to the Scott Monument and the main street of Scotland’s capital.
Explore Loch Ness and Ben Nevis by Motorhome
A motorhome hire or RV rental is the ideal way to see more of Scotland as although the places you visit may be interesting, the views of the Scottish countryside between the destinations are always equally impressive. Drive across the country past Scotland’s most famous lake, Loch Lomond to visit Inveraray. Having seen this beautiful lake and visited the iconic Inveraray Castle, perhaps move on to Oban for a camping holiday by RV rental around one of Scotland’s oldest distilleries for single malt whisky.
From Oban continue travelling north in your campervan hire to Inverness, through the Great Glen passing Ben Nevis, Scotland’s highest peak, and then stopping on the shores of Loch Ness to try and get photos of the legendary monster. Located to the south of Scotland’s highlands where the River Ness flows into the Moray Firth, Inverness has a lot of attractions to offer visitors, from museums and castles to highland games and golf.
St Andrews – The Birthplace of Golf
Travel south from Inverness through the Grampian Mountains to Perth located in the centre of Scotland and the winner of several ‘Beautiful Britain’ awards. After Perth, if you have time, you could travel to St. Andrews on the east coast for perhaps a round of golf on the world famous course where golf was born.
From either Perth or St. Andrews it isn’t a long drive back in your Edinburgh motorhome rental to the Scottish capital. After which, you can spend the last hours of your vacation shopping for souvenirs on Princes Street or in the narrow alleys of the Old Town.
