Motorhome Hire Scotland – The Isle of Arran

27th July 2015

One of our favourite destinations in a motorhome hire Scotland is the Isle of Arran, Scotland. Less than two hours’ drive and a short ferry ride away from Edinburgh, Arran is the closest thing Scotland has to a temperate paradise, thanks to the warm Gulf Stream. Just picture yourself sitting in a deck chair outside your motorhome hire Scotland parked amongst the palm trees and tropical flowers, overlooking the aqua waters of the Firth of Clyde!

Head west in a motorhome hire Scotland on the M8 to Ardrossan, Scotland and catch the Caledonian MacBrayne ferry to Brodick. The crossing takes about an hour, and this is when you start to relax and let the worries of the city fall behind you- it’s the antidote to the workaday routine.

While on Arran, we like to just relax and enjoy the views, the fine food and slow paced way of life in a motorhome hire Scotland. But there is plenty to do and see when you are ready to get out of the deck chair! Take a tour of Isle of Arran Distillers- topped off with a dram, of course. Tour Lochranza Castle while you are in the neighbourhood. And speaking of castles, you could spend all day wandering Brodick Castle and gardens. If you are feeling adventurous, hike up Goat Fell- it’s 2,800 feet but the views all the way to Glasgow and Ben Lomond are worth it. Arran has no shortage of spectacular golf courses and excellent wildlife watching, and is a great place to cycle when you choose Roseisle for motorhome hire Scotland.

Water and sewage facilities are easy to find on Arran. The shops have everything you need to stock up your self-contained motorhome -including famous local produce such as Arran Cheese, Arran Fine Foods and, of course, locally caught seafood right from the pier. There are several friendly and accommodating campsites on the island, but you will probably need to book in advance in the summer. However, as always, we like to wild camp when we can, especially when we are taking a weekend jaunt to the Isle of Arran, Scotland.
