Seas the day in an automatic campervan rental – Part 1Posted on: July 11, 2017
Did you know that Scotland boasts some of the best beaches in the world? Forget the Caribbean- we have white sands, turquoise waters, sweeping bays and rad waves right here! It won’t be as warm as the Caribbean, but it won’t be as crowded either, and when you visit one of Scotland’s gorgeous beaches in a luxury automatic campervan rental, you can explore them in comfort and style!
It’s almost summertime, so why not plan a memorable beach holiday in a campervan? And if you are stuck for ideas, over the next few weeks we will present some of our favourite beaches in Scotland.
Balinoe Beach, Isle of Tiree in an automatic campervan rental
The Isle of Tiree is famous for its fabulous beaches and tropical-like climate in the summer and Balinoe Beach is one of the best places to experience it all in a campervan hire. After all, Tiree is known as the ‘Sunshine Isle,’ with the warm Gulf Stream and some of the most glorious sunshine in Scotland. The waters are so renowned that surfers from around the world make the pilgrimage to ‘hang 10 and compete in the annual Tiree Wave Classic. From the ferry, follow the road up from the pier in your automatic campervan rental, at the junction turn left and follow signs to Crossapol, then follow signs for Balemartine. Before reaching Balemartine on the right is a sign for Balinoe.
Automatic campervan rental and The Silver Sands of Morar, Arisaig
The name is evocative of tranquil azure waters lapping against sugar sand beaches. This string of gorgeous beaches in Scotland has inspired artists and filmmakers for generations- in fact, scenes of The Highlander and Local Hero were filmed here. The tropical look of The Silver Sands of Morar will certainly charm you, but the views over the Small Isles- Rum, Eigg, Muck and Canna- can’t be beat. There are lovely campsites in the area for your campervan rental or find a spot to wild camp and let your inner hippie free! From Oban, take A828 to Fort William, then the A830 to B8008.
