Orkney Islands in a Campervan

Have you ever been intrigued by the isolation of the Orkney Isles. If so why not hire one of our campers from our Easicampers at Edinburgh Airport.
After collecting your campervan from our dedicated staff it’s time to start on your adventure. This is a journey that will take you through forest and country parks, wild and rugged terrain and the VW California is perfect for these conditions.

With a 7 speed DSG Automatic gearbox these were built for the Highlands of Scotland. After leaving the capital of Edinburgh set off North. Now the quickest way to get to the Orkney Islands is by driving up the A9 through the cities of Perth(Scotland) and Inverness it is a 6 hour drive to Scrabster where you will board the ferry to get to the Islands.
Your pick up of your campervan begins at 14:00pm so you would probably be better to stay over somewhere in between Perth and Inverness to recharge your batteries before you embark on the rest of your journey. You will find a list of campsites here which could be helpful in finding somewhere to split your trip up:www.ukcampsties.co.uk

A good half way point is around the Aviemore area of the Cairngorms National Park this will break up your trip and give you a chance to take in the dramatic views of the Area.
After a peaceful night’s sleep in your vw california campervan its time to set off again on the A9 up through Inverness to the UK’s most northernly harbour town of Scrabster which is located 3 hours from Aviemore.
It’s here in this idyllic fishing port where you will catch your ferry over to Orkney and begin your Island experience. Your boat to the Mainland Island will take you in to the town of Stromness.
Check for times for the ferry services to the islands http://www.scrabster.co.uk/sectors/ferries

The Orkneys are full of Neolithic sites including Skara Brae which is home to a preserved village and a reconstructed house and chambered burial tomb. It was back in 1850 when a large storm hit the Islands and uncovered the fascinating site.
The islands are home to large seal colonies and home to stone circles that are older than Stonehenge.

If you want to see an abundance of wildlife then Westray Island is one of the places to go. Book in advance if you want to take your camper as space is limited. Here you will see Puffins, Razorbills and Kittiwakes(make sure you have brought your binoculars).
The Islands are famous for its fantastically tasting seafood and beef. There are a number of fine restaurants but two favourites are the following thefoveran.com and ferryinn.com have a look for ideas.

This is an isolated area so make sure you are fully prepared for all weather possibilities.
If you would like to book one of our campervans from our Edinburgh site for a getaway to Orkney Islands contact us on 0800 688 9869 or visit our dedicated website www.easicampers.com.
