North Coast 500 by Motorhome

Winter is a great time to hire a campervan in Scotland. Enjoy wider choice, quieter destinations and unique natural wonders such as the Northern Lights. However, a lot of campsites open seasonally, so it helps to be prepared and know where to go.

We have compiled a few go-to websites showing campsites open all year round in Scotland.


1. UK Camping and Caravanning Club

As part of your booking, we offer free temporary membership to the The Camping & Caravanning Club Privilege Scheme. You can benefit from up to 30% off participating campsites. In Scotland, the Club suggests Moffat (Dumfries & Galloway) as a winter campsite destination.

2. PitchUp

PitchUp is another website we recommend when looking for campsites. They have a handy locator where you can filter your search by availability and region, among other features. PitchUp has 22 campsites to choose from when you select Scotland and open all year round!

3. UK Campsites

UK Campsites feature campsites in the UK, Ireland and some European countries. It has a special section for winter camping and campsites are listed by region.

Why not check out Woodland Group campsites at  Loch Lomond, Blairgowrie, Corriefodly & Deeside for a cosy Bunk Campers stop-over this winter?


Wild Camping

Wild Camping is illegal across the UK & Ireland for campervans and motorhomes, including in Scotland.  Although in many parts it is tolerated, provided a common sense approach is taken and leave no trace principles are followed.

If you are wild camping, there is always the risk of being moved on – especially if it is considered that you are causing an obstruction. Certain Scottish islands (such as Colonsay and Tiree) also don’t allow campervans or motorhomes at all since they lack the infrastructure. Loch Lomond is subject to Wild Camping byelaws throughout the National Park between March and September in order to protect the loch shores. So, camping is only permitted in certain areas.

There is a vast array of campsites with picturesque locations across Scotland, use these first before you consider Wild Camping in a campervan. Sites are geared up for motorhomes, have all the facilities as well as a warm welcome and great local advice to visitors. Not to mention that if you’re staying locally on a campsite you’re contributing much-needed income to the local economy!
