stories, advice and pictures from cairngorm campers and our camper vanning friends
So far we have had lots of folk heading for the NC500, many munro baggers, some talented photographers and even some pack rafters, but lizzie and her pals were our first ‘wild swimmers’. Read how they got on in their camper van trip to the west coast.
Iona, Douglas and Jack (their collie) took one of our vans on three day mini break to check it out.
I am a guy who appreciates the simple things in life. I am getting on a bit now and what I like best is a nice meal plus the company of my favourite people. I love to enjoy the outdoors and I am so blessed to live (in my opinion) in the best place on earth: the Scottish Highlands. In general I am not really one for holidays. You can keep your luxury city breaks – just not enough green stuff for me. I do have a passport but I have yet to venture abroad. It all seems like a lot of hassle to me, and I’d probably be too hot anyway. Why waste all of that energy going to another place when our home country has so much to offer?
Even though at my time of life I really would rather stay home and smell the flowers, I do realise that the important people in my life like to get away and see other places. Here is my recommendation for a holiday that comes a close second to your own garden.
P.S. You may need to remind your humans to pack the Bonios.
We may be biased, and a little bit mad, but we think taking a campervan round Scotland is a fantastic holiday to do with kids! Here at Cairngorm Campers HQ we have a 8 week week old and a two year old, and we’ve had a lot of fun as a family out on the road. Here are our top five reasons why you should give it a go!
We often get asked about the amount of storage space in our vans and what to bring for a campervan holiday in Scotland. It’s a difficult question to answer as it does depend on the type of van break you want to have and the activities that you enjoy doing. But we don’t like to be defeated! To help shed some light on the issue, we asked friend of Cairngorm Campers (and seasoned van owner) Jayne, to give you her top tips on what to bring and most importantly, what not to bring!
