Hiring a motorhome is the perfect answer for heading to all types of events and shows across the UK
Here are a few suggestions:
North Coast 500
The North Coast 500 (NC500) is one of Scotland most popular tourist routes. It is approximately 513 miles and the route can be travelled clockwise or anticlockwise, around a mainly coastal route going north from Inverness. Rated by the Times newspaper as the fifth best driving route in the world, we recommend a minimum of five days to travel along the circular route, which starts and ends in Inverness.
The NC500 is a great way to see the North Highlands and to explore some of Scotland’s natural beauty. In one of our motorhomes you have the freedom to go where you want when you want; no time spent searching for a Hotel or Bed & Breakfast accommodation on the route, that has to be booked many months in advance.
When travelling around the NC 500 there are too many places to list that you should visit but we recommend that you stop off at John O’Groats; there you can jump on to a speedboat and take in the amazing wildlife and mainland coastline from the water.When continuing along the top of the country, you will pass Ben Hope – the most northly Munro.If you’re feeling fit, the climb is worth it; the views from the top out over Loch Hope and out to sea are spectacular.Continuing west you will pass Smoo Cave a large sea cavern.If you’re feeling adventurous, there are small boat tours offering the opportunity to study stalagmites and stalactites. At the NW corner of the route you will find Durness and Sandwood Bay with beautiful white sand beaches. Cape Wrath is close by and has a lovely lighthouse café – the west coast section of the NC500 is simply breath-taking and there are many more great places to take in on your adventure.

North Coast 250
Experience a journey of stunning scenic contrast and explore the rich heritage and culture of The Heart of Scotland – all in one amazing route.
A great way to see the islands, you can take the motorhome and jump on a ferry and explore some of the Scottish Islands. We recommend that you book your ferry prior to arrival as they can get pretty busy, especially in peak season.
A one-hour ferry crossing from John O’Groats or Gills Bay will take you to Orkney.Beautiful scenery, Highland Park distillery and ancient archaeological sites are just a few of the great attractions to be found there.
A ferry from Aberdeen will take you and the motorhome to the Shetland Isles and here, you can appreciate the Nordic cultural influence.You can also organise an island-hopping tour of the Western isles; CalMac ferries have daily routes that will make planning your trip very simple.A one-week Western island-hopping tour is getting more and more popular, and with the freedom of a motorhome you come and go as you please.
Scotland has incredible scenery; perfect for walking, running or orienteering, and hiring one of our motorhomes is the perfect a way to see and feel what Scotland is all about.There are the UK’s highest mountains to conquer, breath-taking forest walks and scenic coastal adventures to be had on foot.Being in a motorhome allows you to park up at a designated spot and off you go to explore.After a long day hiking it’s great to know that you’re back in your luxurious motorhome with all the comforts you need.

What about the West Highland Way? Its 68 miles between Glasgow/Milgavie and Fort William, and the route takes you over some of Scotland’s most rugged terrain, including the Devils staircase in Glencoe.Fear not – transport is available anywhere on the route to take you back to wherever you parked the motorhome.Alternatively, how about the Spey Way, (Granton-on-Spey to Spey Bay) walking through the heart of the whisky distillery countryside?
