Popular Places to Visit in Scotland for Campers

Scotland has a deep and fascinating history, evident in its ancient castles, historic battlefields, and traditional festivals. The elegance of Edinburgh Castle, the battlefields of Culloden, and the prehistoric village of Skara Brae offer a glimpse into Scotland’s past and present charm. 

For those who love the vastness and openness of the countryside, the North Coast 500 is a famous scenic route that covers the best parts of the Highlands. In remote areas such as the Isle of Skye, the lack of light pollution provides the perfect environment for star gazing. The highlands are also a great place for spotting dolphins, red deer, and otters. 

Other popular attractions include the Cairngorms National Park, which offers opportunities for hiking, wildlife watching, and visiting serene lochs. Some other famous hikes include Ben Nevis, the West Highland Way, and the Great Glen Way.

For stunning coastal scenery, you can catch a ferry to the Orkney and Shetland Islands, offering breathtaking views. If you prefer to discover various lakes, Loch Ness, perhaps the most famous lake in Scotland, is the second deepest lake, offering serenity. 

You can also visit Loch Lomond, the largest lake in England, and Loch Maree, known for its stunning scenery, rare wildlife, and islands featuring ancient religious ruins.
