Rent a Motorhome in ScotlandPosted on: September 24, 2015
Autumn is a great time to rent a motorhome in Scotland and head for the Cowal Peninsula, known as the land of beautiful contrasts. Just a ferry trip across the Firth of Clyde to Dunoon, the mountains edge the sea lochs for a picture-perfect welcome. Or, Cowal can be reached on a scenic two-hour drive via A82 by Loch Lomond side- either way, it’s less than three hours from the Roseisle Luxury Campervans, where you can rent a motorhome in Scotland, to a world of both tranquility and exhilaration.
Argyll Forest Park and Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park offer some of the most wild and striking vistas in Scotland, while the Arrochar Alps, which straddle both areas, are popular with hill walkers. When you rent a motorhome in Scotland, there are plenty of options to set up camp at one of the many welcoming and scenic touring parks and campsites around Cowal. Or find your own secluded spot where you can look out for the abundant wildlife- the peninsula is a haven for red squirrels, deer, otters, dolphins and basking sharks, among many other species.
History lovers will find a variety of attractions to explore when they rent a motorhome in Scotland, such as Castle House Museum in Dunoon, the Old Manse Museum near Colintraive, and Strachur Smiddy, dating to the 1790’s. The brooding ruins of Castle Lachlan near Strathlachlan dating to the 1300’s are a lovely sight on the loch. At Inveryne and Balliemore and Glendaruel, standing stones and cairns evoke legends of those who lived here over 3,000 years ago.
The colourful autumn foliage can be best appreciated when you rent a motorhome in Scotland and drive down the scenic shores of Loch Fyne to Ardkinglas House and Gardens, home of Britain’s tallest tree. Crisp fall days are perfect for an amble through the vibrant foliage at Benmore Botanic Garden, located at the gateway to the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.
The brilliant landscape and ever changing light of Cowal inspires many artists who have chosen to locate or visit here. Open studios invite visitors to see artists at work, and even get a chance at the palette themselves- painting holidays are very popular in Cowal, so don’t forget your easel and paints!
