Hill walking with your motorhome
In Spring 2015, Trail magazine featured a great article showing how fantastically accessible Scotland’s amazing peaks are from a motorhome. We have used ours on many occasions, especially in the Spring and Autumn when the days are shorter. (It’s also a magical thing to do on Midsummer Night).
You can park at the bottom of the path, and be on the road really quickly. There’s also the added advantage of a hot cuppa as soon as you get back, and somewhere to get warm and dry if the weather has been mixed.
Our motorhomes can carry you to the really wild areas North of Fort William, and having a movable home for the night also means you can plan your walk according to the weather forecast. Many pubs and cafes will allow you to park for the night, too, which means a hot meal and a few drinks if you don’t want to cook.
Here are five of the best Scottish roadside peaks according to Trail :
Beinn Alligin, Torridon
Slioch, Wester Ross
Buachaille Etive Mor, Rannoch Moor
The Saddle, Glen Shiel
Bidean nam Bian, Glen Coe
