Munro Bagging with a Campervan!
Posted on by Jo Page
Munro Bagging has become an extremely popular tick box challenge for many an experienced hill walker, its ever increasing popularity is inspiring more people, from complete beginners to take on hill walking. The munro bagging bug is easily caught and more and more people are setting themselves the fantastic challenge of bagging each and every summit possible.
There are 282 munros in Scotland and being able to tackle 3, 4 or 5 of them at a time makes huge progress into ticking off the complete list. This is where the relationship between campervan or motorhome and the challenge works really well!
Travelling with a campervan or motorhome provides you with so many benefits for this type of adventure.
Having the freedom to camp close to your next munro is a huge tick on the benefit list! Being able to wake up with the lark, or before and set off at whatever time you need to.
With almost every campervan or motorhome you will have water on board so that you are able to wash and in some motorhomes even shower after a day on the hills! And this also means you won’t have to head off without your morning cup of tea.
Upon your return of a long days climb you can dive into your comfy van, switch the heating straight on to warm your bones and relax you.
With a leisure battery on board you are able to have light and 12v electrics meaning your fridge can cool the bottle of wine that you will use to celebrate after ticking off another munro! Or cool the bacon for tomorrows pre munro hearty breakfast. This also means you can cool your water supplies ready for the next days hike.
In our Hire vans the fully equipped kitchen means you are able to cater for yourselves as you go, you will be able to prepare carb fuelled breakfasts, lunches and dinners so you can make sure you head off for the day with a tummy full of campervan cooked yumminess or treat your self to a full Scottish the day after to celebrate!
You can move onto your next ascent taking your accommodation with you and conquering a fair few peaks over the period of a weeks hire!
This is really just the start of a much longer list of benefits a motorhome or campervan could add to your munro bagging needs, but hopefully a little inspiration all the same!

I found Highland Campervans to be a very well organised team and provide an excellent service. Knowing I had a 24hr mobile number to call during my holiday for any problems, gave me full confidence in the camper van ( I did not need to use it). Jo showed me how everything worked before I set off, nothing was too much trouble. From the booking process to returning the van was one of the best holiday experiences I have had. I would fully recommend this company and definitely use them again
