Explore Scotland – A Campervan Adventure

The first campervan adventure in the Camperceilidh was with Ruth & Tim. They chose to explore Scotland with their “home on wheels”.

They took off from Aberdeen after the handover, and were soon on their way to begin their campervan adventure. Their plan was to hike some specific Munros and do some wild camping, hiking and cycling.

Their Route:

The route plan for their adventure took them first from Aberdeen to Ballater in Deeside, where they stayed overnight and became accustomed to the workings of the campervan.

As seasoned adventurers and explorers of Scotland, their sights were set on the area around Sheildaig in Wester Ross where they witnessed Sea Eagles and cycled the Bealach-na-Ba over to Applecross. Quite an achievement!


Exploring Scotland is what they did by moving up to Torridon and they then climbed and camped at Ben Alligan – a Munro!

With their home on wheels, they were able to travel on over to Gairloch to camp at Melvich where they watched the sun set over the magnificent Western Isles.

Heading north-east to Lochinver they cycled the Quinaig Coastal Route before starting their return to Aberdeen, via Bonar Bridge and the Moray Coast.


Stopping off at Findhorn Bay, they captured the superb sunset shown below. Before taking the scenic route down to Braemar, they cycled out to the beautiful Linn of Dee, before completing their adventure back in Aberdeen.

Their Experience:

A truly enjoyable experience – We are so sad it is all over!”

We have had the most fantastic experience in our first Campervan Adventure.”

Thank you for being so helpful on our trip, and in contact when we needed input.”

We will come again.”

The Capercaillie Campervan – Home on Wheels!

The fully equipped Campervan comes with en-suite facilities, a fully equipped Kitchen and Fridge, a cycle rack and and a few luxuries thrown in, including #sweetiesintheglovebox. The Campervan became Ruth and Tim’s “home on wheels” for their adventure through Bonnie Scotland…..

Where would you go….and what would you do?

Top Tips:

  • Don’t pack too much – Space is at a premium
  • Look ahead at the weather forecast – pack accordingly
  • Park on level ground (there are wheel chocks now and a spirit level thanks to T & R’s clever suggestion)
  • Sleeping Bags are easier than a Duvet!
