The gateway to Scotland’s Central Belt, Edinburgh is a massive city surrounded by picturesque scenery. It sits close to seaside villages and is just a stone’s throw away from a number of historical sites. It is a great base to use for a self-driving tour, with hiring a motorhome an increasingly popular way to see the sights.

Edinburgh is the capital and largest city in the Lothians region, and self-drive is a great way to explore the area. There is a wide selection of recreational vehicles on offer and plenty of campsites, making touring the area by campervan comfortable.

Recommended Touring Van Drives

East Lothian:

from the city, east along the coast of the Firth of Forth to Dunbar and passing through picturesque villages, relaxing on award-winning beaches and stopping en route for a round of golf at a world-class club. Rest overnight at Tantallon Caravan and Camping Park or Bellhaven Bay Caravan and Camping Park.

Loch Lomond:

found just northwest of Edinburgh, is one of Scotland’s most visited sites. Along the way, visit the ruins of Linlithgow Palace from Beecraigs Country Park Caravan and Camping Site and tour the historic city of Sterling from Auchenbowie Caravan Site.

Edinburgh to Glasgow:

taking scenic routes instead of the major M8 motorway to enjoy the lovely countryside. Along the way, go shopping in Livingstone, hike around the picturesque Pentlands Hills Regional Park and visit Chatelherault Country Park. There are a few places to stop and rest, such as Linwater Caravan Park and Strathclyde County Park.
