Before embarking on your trip, Easicampers Edinburgh recommends to plan your route and make reservations for overnight stops at campsites. The Isle of Skye has a wide range of campsites to choose from, including traditional campsites with amenities like showers and toilets, and more primitive wild camping spots. Make sure to check the campsite’s availability during your trip and book in advance.

Easicampers Edinburgh recommends the first stop on your trip should be the island’s capital, Portree. The town is small but charming, with brightly colored houses and a picturesque harbor. Here you’ll find a variety of shops and restaurants, as well as the Aros Centre, which has exhibits on the history and culture of the island.

From Portree, take the A87 road to the Quiraing, one of the island’s most famous and breathtaking landscapes. The Quiraing is a series of huge rock pinnacles, cliffs and plateaus that are the remains of a massive landslip. Hiking trails take you to the top for incredible views of the surrounding mountains and coast. Plan an adventure with Easicampers Edinburgh today and book on Easicampers.com

Easicampers Edinburgh recommends the next step on your journey to be the Old Man of Storr, a pinnacle of rock that rises out of a hillside on the Trotternish Peninsula. The walk to the Old Man of Storr is a moderate hike, and it takes around 1.5 hours round trip. From the top, you’ll be able to see the island’s rugged landscapes and the sea beyond.

The Fairy Pools is another must-visit destination on the island, located in the Glenbrittle area on the island’s west coast. The Fairy Pools are a series of crystal-clear pools that are fed by waterfalls. The pools are surrounded by beautiful scenery, including the Black Cuillin Mountains. A hike to the pools takes around 1.5 hours round trip.

If you love castles like our staff at Edinburgh Easicampers then Isle of Skye is home to the famous castles, one of the most famous is Dunvegan Castle, the oldest continuously inhabited castle in Scotland, it dates back to the 13th century. It’s open to visitors from April to October and the castle has a fascinating history and beautiful gardens.

If you’re interested in history and archaeology, head to the island’s south end to visit the Iron Age brochs (round towers) of Dun Beag and Dun Borreraig. These ancient structures are some of the best-preserved examples of their kind in Scotland, and offer a glimpse into the island’s past.

The Isle of Skye also has some of Scotland’s best seafood, be sure to try some local seafood dishes like Cullen skink (a creamy smoked haddock soup) or freshly caught lobster or crab.

In summary, a motorhome trip with Easicampers Edinburgh to the Isle of Skye offers the opportunity to experience some of the most beautiful and rugged landscapes in Scotland, while also immersing yourself in the island’s rich history and culture. With a variety of outdoor activities, historic sites, and delicious seafood to enjoy, the Isle of Skye is an ideal destination for a motorhome adventure.


Running in the Skye

Legends, landscapes and elements, the Isle of Skye is a summary of Scotland. A setting set
to the full west, from which one does not return unscathed. Fantastic and unexpected,
let’s pass the door of the Outer Hebrides: the Skye Trail awaits us.

What if all of Scotland were there? superlative island. Just yesterday, hanging from the
paneling, Skye’s map seemed to breathe. A barely grounded gem. It is the end of one Scotland,
and the beginning of another. It therefore has this unique charm of the ends of the world,
suspended like an ultimate tarmac. Isolated and connected, enough but not too much. Look
at its cutout: a chopped flower that hopes for the azimuth. Three peninsulas that go for the
northwest, and lighthouses like Adam’s knuckles. Michelangelo in a kilt? Skye’s hand reaches
out to the Outer Hebrides, and closes the Inner. End of story, the choice is yours: either you
stay or you embark and then enter Lewis and Harris. Another world, another nugget, but
beyond that nothing more. Oh yes, there is Iceland 800km away. Skye smiles knowing she’s
beautiful and rare, but still true. Skye? could be a star (pun at 112 ITRA), or a snobbish film
set. No despair in this end of Scotland, no farewell to the land. Take an elaborate breastplate,
and tie it loosely around the neck of the Highlands: just a strand, and here is the island in
balance via 500 m of bridge. However, this delicate pebble contains everything. Crests,
megaliths, horizons, furious waters, 5-star singletracks, and a trace that we would not dare to
dream of: the Skye Trail is 130km long, invites you to train and has been watching us for 8
years. 8 years of waiting and here it is at 40 minutes. Skye, or when the map sublimates the
territory. So this morning, we don’t turn around when boarding.

And for us, all began in a van, with the help of Hanley’s family’s company : Easicampers, and
the road is pure beauty. Once again, Teddy is waiting for us, and will open up our minds to
new Scottish realities – by a roadtrip-motorhome discovery… “Hi, Pal. You know how to drive,
I guess ? Bring us back some wonderful views…asap”.

Behind us ? some straws – thin metal. The ice of Ben Nevis (1345m) which smokes under the
dawn. The Sgùrr Na Ciche (1040m) and the Ladhar Bheinn (1020m) plated gold, bursting the
mist; and the sloshing ferry. A cinemascope of marine travel, the ending Highlands offer
themselves in silence – take your time, captain. We reach Armadale as others take the bus,
but this one looks up; lochs Nevis and Hourn have done their job well, patiently digging the
ocean tomb of Christophe Lambert. Yesterday, the Highlands took our van from the east coast
to the west coast of Scotland. Each his own California; I prefer this Wild West there. To reach
Skye, two springboards; the boat or the road. Trailer-backpacker, choose your camp to remain
discreet; it will be a naval atmosphere to touch Skye as gently as possible, almost a caress
before rolling towards the bay of Elgol. Single roads, dead ends? I don’t care, my good lady,
“Thanks, but I’ve already been here”. And as a good self-esteemed frouze, tells me about it, a
connoisseur in tartan, with a muffled step like the owner of the place. Broken rifle or pipe in
mouth, I imagine; on the other hand I have my beautiful lycra for when the weather is nice.
French cicada fluttering. And then it happens. The horizon opens with a shock. Peaks in sight.

And I have to sit down.

No, I didn’t remember Skye. The ridge picks me up like a tender blue, when it emerges full
face. Tear in the sky, red and black without a singer, the 950m Sgùrr stand up in army and
refrain from crushing me. Alasdair, Dearg, Na Banachdaich, Nan Gillean; the consonants rain
down, a Basque would be ashamed, the rock splashes on me and the mountain explodes on
me. Two giant paws in an arc ready to lock you in the bay; or marinate in their lochs Coruisk
and Na Creitheach. I had forgotten. Did I know, deep down? Happé-ému (ITRA 143), I have the
chochotte geographite and the artichoke heart of the crazy relief; and tremble with Scottish
love. I fly and re-fly. By my Celtic gods, by Verdana, Verbena and all the word fonts, it is the
Cuillin Hills that form this crater and show the way. “In the North, climb north to come back
to us in 8 days”. It is a reunion with unsuspected emotion. At the time of northern full throttle,
I keep a small tear as a talisman, and the bruise of my euphoria in a delicious sore. But the
program is vast: I wanted to see Skye again, I hailed its southern cove and its stone giants. But
now, if 60 km separate me from Duntulm, it will be 128 which will welcome my pumps from
Rubah Hunish to Broadford. And a second salute to Elgol, skyrace style (very) tense. 4 p.m., it
is dark.

I will never get used to the Scottish brunette. Here, around the 57° north parallel, the aurora
borealis undulate during nights from 5 p.m., as for the days… you will have calculated. With
65 km by 78, the island is as compact as it is dense. Yes, nothing to do: like a higher notch, one
more intensity. Skye is vibrant ore. Myths and legends hide under each stone, the petrified
Old Man of Storr watches the appearance of the witch Cailleach Bearrach. The p he oldest
rocks in the world murmur under 24 layers of lava. The case is small, so it becomes a
magnifying glass and a marvel. Fairies were partying in the Fairy Pools, while tectonics lifted
two ridges (Cuillin Hills and Quiraing) and a Lost World setting. Elric the Necromancer meets
there in a tank top, the hobbits run minimalized… in short. There’s heaven in there, and
surprise at every turn. And then there’s fellrunning.

Talk to him Skye, twists and turns and fell (…), and Neil Turner will offer you dual citizenship.
Better than a PACS, an eternal and solid friendship like a Ben Nevis Race. Or that these classics
of mountain running with Scottish sauce, which would send the Dolomites back to a treadmill.
Fell? “hill” in English. But also mud. Snow, peat, wind, rain, dirt, pain, lactic, worse than that.
Difficult, what. But above all “pure”. Beautiful, original, humble. True: to a summit you will
climb, the first you will come down. A pint (and all our respect, and here that means
something) you will win. And somehow, eternal: “Trail and fell are still mountain running, and
after all these years, I still don’t have the words to describe the fullness experienced. But there
is something really different with fellrunning. Perhaps the outline, the idea of going as straight
and quickly as possible to the summit. Regardless of the terrain, the lack of a trail. In this, I
find exactly the soul of my island. Skye…it really is a land to be understood by trotting. Like a
hospitality from the ground”. The best are not mistaken. For 10 years, Neil and his team have
organized the legendary Trotternish Ridge Race and Glamaig Hill Race, some of the toughest
races in Scotland and part of the national championships.

8.00 a.m. The Rubah lighthouse is now far away, and the Trotternish ridge blew us away for
more than 20km. From reserves to waterfalls, the trail lists the most famous spots – quite
simply. Running here is like running along a sag. Trot in high gear, when the lower one sits 500
meters below. And always this sensation of buzzing, low frequencies, tripaille tellurism or
Tibetan mantra. Either the stone is the cause, or men were turned into rock. The breaks follow
one another because the decor is touching: the scale is human, Skye peaks at 1700 km2,
culminates at less than 1000 meters, and enjoys the harmony of the little one. How precious
are these places whose scenography would have been designed for us. I mean “me”. But the
click of a carabiner expels me, the Old Man of Storr hooks his first climber of the day, and 15
km remain until Portree; halfway to Elgol. Back to the coast to reach the big city (3000 souls)
which takes a Celtic nap, and sends me back to the foot of Ben Tanahaig: 413m, the bar of 150
prominence* is crossed, so we call it a marylin. Definitely, I love Scotland and the words of its
bumps. I taste his fell, marylins and munros**. Speaking of munros, I’ve been obsessed with
a dragon crest for 2 hours, far away. The Cuillins approach.

Because past Sligachan, a jagged horseshoe traces the horizon. Sligachan? its stone bridge was
designed for gambling. Choice n°1: follow the Skye Trail to go straight. Go along the River
Sligachan and run 20 km panoramic without D+. But above all, above all, make yourself small
and silent at the bottom of the valley: you brush against the colossi. Marsco on the left (736m),
Sgùrr Nan Gillean on the right. Walk in the garden of the gods. Choice #2: Barely veer to
go…Skye-run those Cuillins. Don’t beat around the bush. The Sgùrr only ask; technicality and
the sun oblige, but without a rope. It’s a safe bet that the howling wind will blow your breath
away. But what is this final cliff? error ? supreme oblivion. Jeff Smith had however warned
me: “350m of feet-hands on a very simple slope. Easy, but be careful. At worst you slip, and
splash 15 meters down. Don’t do the distilleries the day before, that’s all.” Thank you Jeff, I
still have 30 minutes of daylight and a shortcut to Blà Bheinn (930m). Broadford is waiting for
me 35 km away, and it already smells of peat fire and hops. But next year, we promise; tonight
the road is beautiful to finish undulating.

From the ocean to snowy peaks, I realize I have climbed almost 5000 meters. Skye, celestoterrestrial showcase to enter Scotland? Last look at a jewelry store, before weighing anchor?
I think back to Jeff’s words. “All the natives come back to live there. One day or another. Even
those who wanted to see Auld Reekie***”. You surprise me, Jeff. When the counter suddenly
ejects my phone – “vibrate” mode. White fleece, ruddy complexion and Christmas beard:
Captain’Haddock has great class and calls me in video. “So, are you lining up for the 2022 Skye
Ultra Trail? “. I’m thinking about it, Jeff. I’m thinking about it.

Campervan Hire in Kent and Dover

Hiring a campervan in our new Heathrow location has never been easier, there are 3 easy ways to book your VW campervan with Easicampers Heathrow, you can book through our  website https://easicampervanhire.com/campervan-hire-heathrow-airport/  or give us a call on 01942 821080 or 01942 778899 or you can email us on wigan@easicampers.com or bookings@easicampers.com.  Here we have found a popular location for this summer so why not give it a try?

The rural country of Kent is located perfectly on the south east coast of England. This gives it just enough distance from London Heathrow to have a great road network yet far enough away to be well out of all the hustle and bustle of the city. Plus as it’s on the south coast it gets more than a fair amount of sun, making Kent the perfect location for a  Campervan holiday this summer.
Take a look at what Kent has to offer the family

Bedgebury National Pinetum and Forest
For the outdoorsy family, there is always Kent’s Bedgebury Forest. This makes up the largest area of natural beauty in Europe and makes it perfect for a quiet exploration with the family and really getting into the heart of summer with some forested fun. Boasting natural wildlife, high ropes course’, mountain bike trails and lots and lots of hiking. This has something for everybody on your next family holiday.
There is a camp site on the actual forests land its self, which allows Motorhomes. Making this the perfect location for a Motorhome retreat with the whole family this summer. The camp site even boasts a bush course to be able to train the little ones how to survive in the wild. Courses start from as little as £6 and run on weekends.

Saint Mary’s Bay
When you simply want to relax in the sun, Saint Mary’s Beach is the place for you. It is located just far away from the nearest town to make it a bit quieter but not far away to deprive it of necessities. This small beach is on the far south coast of the Kent county and is connected by an A road to the outside world. It is backed by 3 large golf resorts and a private mansion. It may sound like a very high-end place but in reality it’s very competitively priced when you get to the nearest town of New Romney.
The nearest Motorhome campsite to here would be New Romney Camping Site.

Dover Castle
Maybe history is more your thing? Well, there is always Dover Castle. Boasting wartime museums with displays dating all the way back to its creation in 800BC all the way up to WWII. This castle has something for anybody interested in history. The castle is based in Kent’s small town of Dover but has a lot of countryside in the surroundings where Motorhome camp sites are common practise.
The closest campsite we could recommend would be The Chequers Caravan Club. This is a caravan club that gives discounts to members but it also pretty cheap without a membership, so is well worth a visit.

The Historic Dockyard Chatham
If you love a good museum then The Historic Dockyard Chatham could be just right for you. This museum has been the star of many TV shows ranging from Mad Men to The Golden Compass. The location is a step back from the modern world and you will feel immersed by its very nature as soon as you arrive. Try it for yourself this summer.
The nearest mobile home camp site would be the Fell Barn Inn. Don’t be tricked by the name, the site isn’t actually an inn.

Maybe your looking into buying a  Campervan but would like to try one before you buy then please do not hesitate to contact us at Easicampers Heathrow and we would be more than happy to assist with any enquires.

Scotland North Coast NC500 Motorhome Hire

What to expect on Scotland’s North Coast NC500

From first-hand experience you can expect to see scenery like never before, from medieval castles set upon jagged pinnacles to vibrant blue lakes surrounded by immense Munroe’s and forestland. Safe to say your camera is unquestionably in for a treat. There is also a small chance of a glimpse of the northern lights concluded the summer months. Below is a sneak peak of some of the sights/activates you’d expect to see during your ‘staycation’.

The Whaligoe Steps

The whaligoe steps are a man-made stairwell that descend into a natural harbour located between two sea cliffs. The steps zig zag down the sea cliff and there is no elevator back to the top, so ensure your walking boots are packed and ready!

Motorhome/campervan friendly roads

Without doubt the NC500 boasts some of the world’s most spectaculars road surfaces as shown above. From first-hand view you could easily mistake this route as a New Zealand road trip. So pack your sunny’s and take it all in… YOU’RE IN FOR A TREAT!

To conclude the NC500 is a necessity for any road trip or campervan fanatic. We can’t stress how much there is to see and do and tailors for everyone and anyone.

I couldn’t recommend the company and route anymore and for all you intending on doing the NC500… You’re in for a luxury!

Best Beaches on the NC500

Although it’s hard to choose a favourite when there are so many stunning sandy seascapes, there are some incredible contenders for best beach and they’re all fabulous in their own way. Meghan Taylor, freelance writer and travel fanatic, has written a blog about her favourite North Coast 500 beaches.

Achmelvich Beach, Lochinver

There are many reasons why we should all be looking at staycations in 2022. The cost of living has risen significantly and we are all trying to be more conscious of our carbon footprint and reduce the amount that we are flying. But we all need some time off every now and again – and that’s where a staycation in Scotland comes in!

Whether you live in the hustle and bustle of a town or city and feel that you need to get away for a while, or just want to indulge in seeing some stunning coastal scenery, Scotland’s coastlines are the ideal place for you. A Scottish escape is just what you need to relax and recharge the batteries – a chance to enjoy some Highland hospitality and take in the awe-inspiring seascapes.

With this in mind, here are some of Scotland’s most stunning sealines that you should visit in 2022.

Lochinver, Sutherland

Lochinver is a small fishing port nestled just north of Ullapool in the remote region of Sutherland. With breath-taking views of not just the coast but also the mountains, Lochinver is the ideal place to pause, breathe in the clean air, enjoy the land (and sea) scapes, and tuck into one of its famous – and delicious – pies.

Lochinver boasts beautiful white, sandy beaches, the Culag Woods with its stunning views, and you can even take a boat trip or kayaking expedition to get a closer look at the coast from the ‘sea’ side. If you are a keen hillwalker, you could scale Suilven – the bizarre-looking twin-peaked, iconic mountain that is on the bucket list of many and enjoy some of the unforgettable views that you get from the top.

Oldshoremore Beach

Ranked consistently as one of Britain’s best beaches, Oldshoremore Beach lies on Scotland’s west coast and is locally known as Am Meallan. The narrow beach, with its pristine sand, lies on the other side of the Eilean na h-Aiteig peninsular to Polin Beach.

Oldshoremore Beach is situated near Kinlochbervie, Sutherland, and it is a spectacular, remote, curving bay with turquoise waters. It is the ideal place for a stroll to take time out for some quiet contemplation, or to enjoy a tranquil picnic.

Melvich Beach

Melvich Beach is one of the north coast’s most beautiful sandy beaches. It is situated at the mouth of the River Halladale and is popular with walkers and surfers alike – and even better, it is often empty. The beach is reached by a short walk through natural dunes which are covered with wildflowers in the springtime.

Surf lessons on the north coast with North Coast Watersports

Whaligoe Haven

Whaligoe Haven in Caithness is a harbour found on the east Caithness coastline. Famous for its iconic Whaligoe Steps – 330 steps that were embedded into the cliff-side and used for years by local fishermen and women. Whaligoe Haven was once a hive of the local fishing industry.

Whaligoe Haven can be reached by road from Wick, or by boat as part of a trip where you can explore sea caves and stacks, see castles, lighthouses and harbours. The stunningly rugged east Caithness coastline is also home to a rich diversity of wildlife, including whales and dolphins.

Firemore Beach

Firemore Beach is located near Poolewe and is a firm favourite of the locals. Its red-hued sandy beach is ideal for bathing and water sports thanks to its proximity to the gulf stream. The beach is predominantly sandy but there are some interesting rock pools around, and the tiny sandy Ewe Island is just across the water.

Close by Poolewe is also Mellon Udrigle Beach – a serene, sandy beach set against a dramatic backdrop of the highland mountains. Locally known as Camas a’Charraig, Mellon Udrigle Beach offers spectacular views both inland over the mountains and out across Gruinard Bay.

Whether you are looking for somewhere to bathe, fish, walk or enjoy the local wildlife, Scotland’s coastlines are the perfect place to go to unwind. Stunning scenery, a unique blend of sea and mountains, clean air, and overwhelming hospitality make Scotland’s coast a wonderful place to enjoy a staycation.
