In the National news! Read all about it!
Posted on by Jo Page
It is always great to get coverage in the press and today we are excited to be featured in an article written for the travel section of the Daily Mirror national newspaper about the North Coast 500, the new scenic route that is Scotland’s answer to Route 66.
Since the launch of the route by North Highland Initiative earlier in 2015, many of our hire customers have taken to explore it and it has become extremely popular with tourists and locals alike.
Because of our expertise in campervan and motorhome hire in the Highlands, we were approached by motorhome manufacturers Swift Group to assist with kitting out one of their Luxury motorhome models, the Bessecar 496, to hand over to journalist Steve Franklin for his road trip around the North Coast 500 with his family.
We were delighted to help and back in July we collected Steve and his excited children, Rohan and Uma, from Inverness airport. Back at the Highland Campervans base in Inverness we introduced them to their dream machine motorhome that was to be their home for their trip. We spent time as we always do with all our hire vehicle customers, showing Steve the ropes of the motorhome and how all the facilities worked before they started their adventure north.
As you will read from the article Steve and his children had a wonderful time on the North Coast Route 500, the motorhome taking on the smaller highland roads with ease and they enjoyed the freedom, ease and comfort you get when you travel with your accommodation alongside!
I don’t want to give away the whole experience so why not have a read for yourself! For the full article and photos of the journey click HERE

This was our 1st time using a campervan, it was an excellent size for the 2 of us. Everything we required was provided, down to the last teaspoon. It was a great experience and will probably be repeated next year going to new places.
