Travel the Highlands in your hire motorhome
An area of unspoilt natural beauty, a tour around the Scottish Highlands should be first on your list with Dicksons of Perth motorhome hire Scotland. With so many things to do, we have picked some highlights of this beautiful region for you to visit whilst staying in your own holiday home on wheels.
Your first stop
Your first stop should be the Cairngorms National Park, just a short drive north from our Perth dealership. If you are travelling with children, a visit to the Cairngorm Reindeer Centre just outside Aviemore definitely would not go amiss. Take time out of your day to enjoy guided mountainside visits, you may even get to feed and stroke the UK’s only wild reindeer herd. For the more adventurous, the views from the summit of neighbouring Ben Macdui are well worth the trek up to the top. After a day on your feet, you can return to your hire motorhome for a well needed rest whilst enjoying some stunning scenery before embarking on your next day of adventures.
Whilst you are in the Highlands, a visit to Loch Ness goes without saying. The home of the legendary monster herself, Loch Ness is also the site for the impressive Urquhart Castle, which has stood for over a thousand years and has been witness to many important Scottish events. On the east bank, why not take a trip to the Falls of Foyers, providing scenic walks around a picturesque waterfall. Park your campervan rental up on the banks of the loch and spend the evening admiring the views; this would also be the perfect opportunity to spot some local wildlife.
Next on the list is a trip to Fort William at the foot of Ben Nevis. Harry Potter fans will recognise this as the starting point for the Jacobite steam train used in the films as the iconic route for the Hogwarts Express. Stop off in Mallaig for a spot of lunch before heading back the way you came.
Resting place for weary walkersFort William is also home to many pubs and restaurants, being a resting place for weary walkers of the West Highland Way. If you fancy a trek up Ben Nevis, you are safe in the knowledge that a motorhome rental in Scotland from Dicksons of Perth will be waiting at the bottom!
The Isle of Skye
