Western Isles of Scotland with Easicampers Edinburgh

Are you looking for a trip with a difference? Easicampers Edinburgh have lots of great ideas for you to try. We have a huge number of returning customers and one of the routes that always crops up is the Western Isles or Outer Hebrides. Here at Easicampers we have a wealth of knowledge on both our motorhomes and routes to take. We have listed below a few pointers and tips for your trip.

The Western Isles of Scotland, also known as the Outer Hebrides, are a stunningly beautiful and remote archipelago located off the Northwest coast of Scotland. Exploring the islands by motorhome is a fantastic way to experience their rugged landscapes, white sandy beaches, and rich cultural heritage.
When planning your route, it’s important to consider the time of year you’ll be visiting, as the weather can be unpredictable and some roads may be impassable in the winter. Additionally, the ferries that connect the islands can be affected by weather conditions, so it’s important to check schedules and plan ahead.
One popular route is to begin your journey in the port town of Ullapool on the mainland, where you can catch a ferry to Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis. The island is home to the stunning Callanish Standing Stones, a prehistoric stone circle dating back over 5,000 years. After exploring Lewis, you can then take a ferry to the neighbouring Isle of Harris. The island is known for its rugged landscapes and stunning beaches, such as Luskentyre and Seilebost.
From Harris, you can take another ferry to the Isle of North Uist. The island is home to a wide variety of birdlife, including rare species such as the red-necked phalarope and the golden plover. Additionally, the island has a rich cultural heritage, with many pre-historic standing stones and brochs to explore.
Next, you can take a ferry from North Uist to the Isle of Benbecula, which is linked by causeways to South Uist and Eriskay. The island is home to the Taigh Chearsabhagh Museum and Arts Centre, which offers an insight into the cultural heritage of the islands, as well as the RAF rocket testing range.
From Benbecula, you can take a ferry to the Isle of Barra. Barra is the southernmost island in the Outer Hebrides, and is famous for its beautiful beaches, such as Traigh Mhòr and Traigh Eais, and the historic Kisimul Castle.
Finally, you can take a ferry back to the mainland from Barra, either to Oban or to Uig on the Isle of Skye.
As you travel through the Western Isles, you will come across many small towns and villages where you can stock up on supplies, and also find some good restaurants to eat in. While the island is remote, but well served by campsites, however, it is important to book ahead as these can fill up quickly during the peak season.
Keep in mind that the weather can be unpredictable in the Western Isles, so it’s important to be prepared for all eventualities. Pack warm clothing, waterproof gear, and sturdy walking shoes. Make sure you have maps, a compass, and a good quality torch, as well as a fully charged mobile phone.
With its rugged landscapes, beautiful beaches, and rich cultural heritage, the Western Isles of Scotland are a truly breathtaking destination. Exploring the islands by motorhome is an unforgettable way to experience their natural beauty and history. With the right planning, you’ll be able to make the most of your time in this remote and fascinating corner of the world.

Wild camping Scotland

If hiring a motorhome from Easicampers in Edinburgh, It is generally not legal to wild camp in the UK, including in a motorhome or campervan. This means that you cannot just pull up and park your motorhome on any piece of land without the landowner’s permission. However, there are some exceptions to this rule in Scotland.

In Scotland, it is generally allowed to wild camp as long as you do so responsibly and leave no trace. This means that you should camp in a small group, avoid causing any damage to the land or environment, and leave the area as you found it. You should also be mindful of the rights of the landowner and any other users of the land, such as farmers or local residents.

If you are planning to wild camp in a motorhome near Edinburgh, it is a good idea to research the area in advance and make sure that it is appropriate for overnight camping. It is also advisable to carry out a risk assessment to ensure that the area is safe and that you have all the necessary equipment and supplies with you.

There are also a number of campsites located in and around near our Easicampers depot outside of Edinburgh, which may be a more suitable option if you are looking for a place to park your motorhome overnight.
