Malt Whisky Trail
Speyside is the cradle of the best-known Single Malt whisky in the world. Drive northwards from Bunk Campers’ Edinburgh depot and tour the 70-mile trail where Glenfiddich, Cardhu or The Glenlivet are born. With 8 distilleries to discover, challenge your senses and enjoy the Water of Life!
Dumfries and Galloway
Located in the South of Scotland, the region is easily accessible from either our Edinburgh or Glasgow depots. Travel around this gem of a place in your camper and get swept up in its summits, forests, shores and rare wildlife. Explore Dumfries and Galloway’s castles, mills or mines that not only inspired great writers and artist, including Robert Burns, but also the region’s everyday life. Make a last stop at Galloway Forest Park and enjoy a day of action-packed activities in a magical environment.
Drive route from Glencoe to Fort William
After spending some days in the stunning Glencoe – arguably the Highlands’s most famous and scenic glen – drive northwards along the A82 to Fort William. You will wonder at this 30-mile narrow and windy road with magical views. 15 minutes away from Fort William is Glen Nevis, where Braveheart was filmed. Can you imagine a more epic end to a Scottish road trip?
Hiring a campervan doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the best of Scotland’s islands. On the contrary, your camper will lead you to the most remote, peaceful island paradises. All of our campervans are suitable to travel on main ferry routes from Scotland’s mainland to the islands. Why not experience a wonderful walk around the enchanting Arral Coastal Way? In the afternoon, get back to the road and drive northwards. Visit the picturesque village of Tobermory (Mull) and from there, the magic-shaped Fingal’s Cave at the uninhabited Staffa Island. Continue your island hopping adventure at the fairy pools of the Isle of Skye. Finally, reach the “Scottish Caribbean” on the Isle of Harris: same turquoise waters and sandy beaches… just a few degrees cooler!

The Cairngorms National Park is the located in the heart of the Scottish Highlands. The largest in the UK, the park hosts wonderful flora and fauna, exceptionally cared by the local communities. With several great campsites to park up your camper for the night, you biggest concern will be how to find time for all the great outdoor activities!
