Self-sufficient holiday? Campervan in Scotland from Easicampers will fit the bill for you allowing you to park up and stay in so many amazing places away from the crowds. Alternately you can take your campervan to an organised campsite because Scotland have hundreds of these too so you can have choice as well as being self-sufficient. But what are the challenges in rural Scotland?
The mainland is well provided for in terms of spaces and parks but some islands have access issues as well as limited space and opportunities but your campervan in Scotland will find many places that can happily accommodate you whether on campsites or authorised parking areas but always check the local byelaws regarding overnight parking as place such as St Andrews’ West Beach now forbid this but there are other opportunities close by.
The National Park Authority introduced byelaws for a permit system for night parking between March and October to control numbers around popular lochside locations and at £3 per night it represents value and control for the campervan population in Scotland, especially in high season and benefits holidaymakers and locations.
Many local landowners have local arrangements for campervans and it is worth checking these out to take advantage of quiet, out of the way areas that are not widely publicised. You cannot randomly park where you like so do your research on the area you want to go to and make sure that you find the best spot for what you want to see and do whether it is Loch, Mountain or City.
Campervans in Scotland are welcomed but as a guest always make sure that you act responsibly as the police can give fixed penalty notices to anybody deemed to be littering or adopting anti-social behaviour so have a lovely time parking sensibly and legally and have an amazing time going up and down this fantastic country.
