Hire a motorhome in Edinburgh – PitlochryPosted on: June 15, 2015
It’s time to take full advantage of summer’s long and glorious days, hire a motorhome in Edinburgh and take an epic trip north. The Orkney Islands are our final destination, but we are taking our time to fully experience the dramatic and wild landscape of Scotland’s far north on the way- Pitlochry, the Cairngorms National Park, Caithness and Sutherland. Take a week or, even better, two- there is plenty to do and see on this holiday of a lifetime!
After we hire a motorhome in Edinburgh, we head north on the A9. There is such a feeling of freedom on the open road as the traffic from the city thins out and the Cairngorm Mountains come into view- the stress of everyday life starts to melt away with the miles.
Hire a motorhome in Edinburgh & visit Pitlochry
Our first stop after leaving Edinburgh is Pitlochry, the heart of Highland Perthshire. This is a world away from the central belt, a true holiday destination in and of itself and a brilliant part of the world, rich in history and beautiful scenery. But some say the highlight of Pitlochry is the shopping. The House of Bruar, Scotland’s leading country clothing specialist, is located conveniently off A9. You can get kitted out in stylish quality clothing from tweed and cashmere to gear and sportswear for the whole family. This complex offers free parking, for those who choose to hire a motorhome in Edinburgh, and several halls of shopping and dining, as well as nature trails on site.
Not everyone may want to shop, so let the ladies shop til they drop while the fellows enjoy a hike along a gorgeous set of waterfalls or take in a game of golf nearby. And even if you bought supplies in Edinburgh, be sure to hit the gourmet food shop to stock up on luscious local produce from the butcher, the cheese shop, the bakery and grocers- just wait until you see the enormous array of goodies!
Just down the road, after choosing to hire a motorhome in Edinburgh, head out to Blair Castle and Gardens, one of Scotland’s most grand and storied, where you can tour over 30 rooms of fascinating displays and architecture. There is also a top rate touring park here for those who hire a motorhome in Edinburgh, along with many other quality campsites around Pitlochry. The settings truly are like something out of a fairy tale.
Its easy, hire a motorhome in Edinburgh from Roseisle and see some of the most beautiful parts of the world- practically in your own backyard!
