Scotland’s MountainsPosted on: February 28, 2014
As if you needed another reason to explore Scotland in the comfort of our campervan’s, the breathtaking scenery and surrounding wildlife will surely seal the deal. Travelling through Scotland you will notice the diversity of our landscapes from the beautiful green fields of the Lowlands to the stunning mountains of the Highlands. With everything from routes, hill climbs and mountain bike trails in between, suiting all kinds of adventurers.
The unusual skyline and fabulous views make Ben Arthur, at 2,900 ft (884 m), also known as ‘the Cobbler’, one of Scotland’s most spectacular mountains. This popular mountain is where many of Scotland’s early climbers started training and is part of the Arrochar Alps, in Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park, less than an hour’s drive from Glasgow.
As some of Scotland’s smaller mountains, the Grahams are less inclined and make for an excellent day out for the whole family. This makes it a perfect destination to park up the campervan and allow the kids to get more involved with nature.
If you are looking for something a little bit more challenging then use the campervan’s satellite navigation to point you in the direction of the Cairngorms National Park. This extensive mountain range contains four of the five highest mountains in Scotland and will prove to be a challenging walk with rewarding views.
