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. Wake up with a mountain view, stop for a coffee break in a forest and fall asleep by the sea. The freedom of choice is what makes this such a unique experience.

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!

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...

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 blog Flashback 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...
