Scotland VW Campervan Hire – On The Road Again

Location The Staycation Scotland VW campervans are conveniently based in Glasgow, central Scotland. The beauty in hiring a campervan is that you can drive and explore wherever you desire.

You can drive the Nc500, take a trip to Skye or explore Glencoe and the best part is there is no limit on milage! There are also no distance limitations, if want to drive to the magical Cotswolds in England… you can! To help with where to park each...

Taylor Haydon  and James

During the 2020/2021 lockdowns, the only thing that kept me going mentally was the Scottish road trip I was planning in my spare time. Coming across Staycation Scotland on Instagram when they first launched, I knew they were the company I wanted to book with! We stayed in the fabulous ‘Roxy’ for five days in May 2021, travelling from Glasgow via Oban to the Isle of Mull, then on to Glencoe, before visiting the Isle of Skye and ending in Loch Lomond. It was at the beautiful Glencoe Lochan that my partner, James, popped the question! After asking him if he was joking about 20 times, I of course...

Campervan tour of Scottish Highlands creates precious memories for travel editor and family

Mum and dad, two kids and a daft Labrador puppy for four nights in a Volkswagen campervan. What could possibly go wrong? I’ll admit to a bit of apprehension as we embarked on our first campervan trip. Anyone who knows me knows I prefer a hotel to any type of camping. But our van “Carrie” came with all mod cons including wi-fi and plug points so I took the plunge. Purists would argue that it’s not camping if you can use your hairdryer, but with two girls of nine and seven who have a healthy YouTube addiction, the onboard wi-fi was arguably a must. We collected Carrie from Staycation Scotland...

Kirsten and Marc Gault – Staycation Scotland blog

Kirsten and Marc Gault – Staycation Scotland blogFlashback to 2019, and I couldn’t imagine my husband and I choosing a ‘staycation’ in Scotland over a foreign holiday. One pandemic, two (or is it three?) lockdowns and one dog later – and now campervan life has well and truly won us over. We’ve been on two holidays now with a Staycation Scotland campervan…and we are already plotting our third. As the proud parents / pawrents to an adventurous springer spaniel called Enola, we were drawn to the idea of exploring Scotland in a dog-friendly campervan and taking her to every beach, loch, hill and...

Campervanning With Kids – 5 reasons why the whole family will love it.

It’s the summer of the staycation, something I wouldn’t have imagined myself saying at the beginning of the year – yet here we are, five days of adventure later, I keep asking myself – Why haven’t we done this sooner? Our first family road trip in Scotland and the Lake District did not disappoint, it was epic! We loved it and not just for the change of scenery, it was so much more than that. Campervanning with kids is the ultimate adventure, little ones love camper vans. They love climbing, exploring, getting cosy, hanging their little hands out the window. It is freedom, it’s embracing nature,...

My journey through Scotland

Fort William and CamperVan love    Between my husband’s shifts, our holidays abroad and waiting for a ‘good weekend’ weather-wise, the summer was quickly disappearing along with our opportunity to take a trip in my parent’s new VW campervan. So come late September, we were super excited to be packing up ready for an adventure. In the end we opted for a campsite, rather than diving straight into wild-camping, and set our sights on Fort William.    Despite having spent a fair few of my childhood holidays around Scotland, the stunning landscape continues to amaze me, and...

Finding time to ourselves

Lynsey Little, Coatbridge.    ‘My holiday at home.’    Its easy to forget how many wonderful locations and amazing sights there are to see on your own doorstep ! I have just  recently returned from a staycation break in Scotland . I wasn’t in the mood for travelling far and chose to escape normal working life for an adventure closer to home in a Loch Lomond .   It was just the perfect remedy that I needed – no stressful airport check ins , long distance travel or the cost of currency exchange rates .  During my stay I visited many places and took in lots of beautiful scenery – a...
