A campervan or motorhome holiday is a great way to explore the vast, rich and varied natural beauty of Scotland. There are plenty of fantastic campsites spread all over Scotland which provide great bases from which to explore and we would encourage customers to use these where possible. There are also opportunities to informal camp with your vehicle (parking overnight in non-designated sites without facilities) which you may need to do occasionally.
You should never use/find an ‘approved’ list of informal camping spots, as that would direct too many people to the same site and ruin it very quickly. As there are an increasing number of people wanting to enjoy this way of experiencing Scotland, it is important to follow some simple, and common sense guidelines. In doing so, you’ll hopefully help support a sustainable way of experiencing Scotland.

Should you have any questions about informal camping in the Highlands, please do not hesitate to contact us at Highland Campervans and we will be happy to answer all your questions.
It's the freedom of the campervan gives you to just decide where you want to go and when without any agenda. Its parking up at the bottom of a mountain then deciding to have a fry up before your walk. Its being able to park up at a beach for the night and walk on an empty beach at 10pm at night with miles and miles of sand to yourself!
