Best Ways to Get Around in Scotland

Scotland is a beautiful place. And it isn’t a very big place. A regular touristy advice for travelling around the city would be to take flights, do train hopping or may we suggest a more interesting and pragmatic option – rent a campervan or motorhomes and enjoy a road trip around the place. Speaking of motorhomes these are the types of motorhomes you can get for a Scottish road trip.

Scotland by airplane:

Flights may save you a lot of time and they are quite a good option when it comes to accessing remote locations like the Shetland Islands and the Orkneys. However, flights can also be expensive and you may miss the pristine natural beauty of the Scottish Highlands from up in the sky.

Scotland by road – trains, buses and rental motorhomes and cars:

Therefore, many tourists prefer trains, buses and rental options as they are not only economical, but they also get to enjoy the beauty of a coach and road trip. The travel infrastructure in the city is pretty good. And all the major cities and travel destinations in this place are quite well connected by trains and buses.

Pointers for a roadtrip:

If you are travelling as a group or a family renting a motorhome or carsis quite exciting and practical too. But before going anywhere, tourists must ensure that they have the appropriate and valid driving licenses in place. You can either take an international driving permit or of you are from the USA, then your driving license is valid for small vehicles only in the U.K for about 12 months since the time they enter the United Kingdom.

If you are planning a road trip by cars/ campervans, investing in a good-quality GPS device is a must. The Scottish signages adhere to the international standards; however, a GPS is useful for the relatively remote locations and to access the interiors.

We hope this snippet throws some light on how you can plan for an enjoyable and breathtaking Scottish holiday.
