From the Clyde Valley to Ayrshire to Dumfries and Galloway, southern Scotland offers woodland tranquillity, fascinating history and coastal beauty that are perfect for exploring in an automatic campervan rental.

Automatic Campervan Rental through Dumfries and Galloway

In our next series of blogs about holidays in Scotland, we head south to beautiful Dumfries and Galloway. Between Galloway Forest Park and the Colvend Coast in Scotland, there is something for every camper’s taste, along with wee charming villages to explore, such as Portpatrick, Wigtown, Castle Douglas, Kirkbean and Kirkcudbright.

An outdoor playground in your own backyard:

Galloway Forest Park in an automatic campervan rental

Known as “the Highlands of the Lowlands”, Galloway Forest Park is a favourite destination for families looking for both adventure and tranquillity. Pack your hiking boots, bicycles, kayak, telescope or fishing gear, because the park is a big 97,000-hectares playground where couples can get away from it all and families can bond over outdoor adventures. Galloway is also a Dark Sky Park, which means the night sky comes alive like you never see it in the city. Pick out constellations or see the planets up close at the park’s big telescope and night sky viewing events. When you spend your Galloway Forest Park holiday in a motorhome, your next escapade is as far as your front door and there’s no limit to how much you can pack in!
