Rent a Motorhome in Scotland – InvernessPosted on: June 29, 2015
Inverness & rent a motorhome in Scotland
Our epic journey to Orkney continues as we say goodbye to the Cairngorms and continue north to Inverness after we rent a motorhome in Scotland. One of the many benefits of choosing to holiday in a motorhome is flexibility- you can take your time AND be spontaneous, giving you a unique opportunity to see the real Scotland at your own pace.
Once you have chosen to rent a motorhome in Scotland, it’s less than an hour’s drive from Aviemore to Inverness on the A9, which gives you plenty of time to shoot down the A82 from Inverness along Loch Ness in search of Scotland’s most famous legend- the Loch Ness monster, affectionately known as “Nessie.”
A drive down to Drumnadrochit for a visit to the Official Loch Ness Monster Exhibition is a must for Nessie enthusiasts. But you won’t be disappointed if you don’t see Nessie-the loch is the largest freshwater lake in all of Great Britain, with lots of lovely spots to stop for a picnic or a photo op- and the best way to experience it is to rent a motorhome in Scotland. Don’t forget those binoculars!
Inverness is a popular base for those who choose to rent a motorhome in Scotland. Situated on the scenic River Ness, it’s a vibrant city with lots to do, from top rate dining to shopping to museums to world class golf. After a few days in the country, it’s time to hit the shops, hear live music and dine at one of the many fine restaurants and cafés.
Inverness Castle & rent a motorhome in Scotland
Inverness Castle is one of Scotland’s most beautiful. Made of pink sandstone and surrounded by a profusion of flowering plants and shrubs, it is one of the most photographed castles in the country. Brodie Castle is also lovely and very historic, famous for its fabulous daffodil display in spring. The Inverness Museum and Art Gallery is a great way to spend a morning or afternoon, rain or shine. And airplane buffs will want to hit the Highland Aviation Museum, where you can experience being in a cockpit. The kids will love it- and your inner kid will too!
It’s not all city life here, though. Anglers love fishing the River Ness, where the salmon practically jump on your line. Craig Phadrig, an ancient stronghold of Pictish kings, lies just above the city. Take in a forest walk here for brilliant views of the Moray Firth, and get those binoculars out again for some wildlife watching. And any time of year that you visit Inverness, you are liable to catch one of the many great festivals, Highland games or golf championships – a great time to rent a motorhome in Scotland
Inverness is a wonderful stopover on the way north, for next we head to the beautiful wilds of Caithness and Sutherland before boarding the ferry to Orkney. You don’t have to own a motorhome to take advantage of the best way to see Scotland- rent one from Roseisle Luxury Campervans and make holiday dreams come true.
