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.
