Main thing is – don’t be put off by the ferries in case you havn’t been on one in a motorhome -.It’s a doddle. If you’re doing the west coast you must get out into the islands, i would consider getting a Scotland Island Rover ticket unlimited island hopping for a fixed price !.

Motorhomes parked at Applecross Bay
They also do what are called Hopscotch tickets which join up several islands around scotland and can form the basis of an itinierary. Be aware that there are significant discounts on certain routes via a pilot sheme called Road Equivalent Tarriff. The effect of this is that it may be cheaper to book several individual tickets rather than a Hopscotch. Your motorhome will fit on all ferries so dont worry.
Oban is a great setting off point, there is a couple of good campsites there.
Cross from here to Mull, Mull is lovely semi-wild camping in your motorhome at Calgary beach near Dervaig is fab.
Cross to Mull from Oban but come back from Tobermory to Kilchoan. Then head inland till you meet the main road at Salen.
Then north to Lochalort and on to Mallaig.
Ferry to Skye
Have a mooch round Skye especially the north – superb.
Ferry from Uig to Tarbert on harris, Semi-wild camping at Horgabost (best beaches in the world….shhhh don’t tell everyone) park your motorhome on the beach.
Tour round Harris & Lewis.
Come back to mainland scotland via Ullapool, park your motorhome at Ullapool campsite overlooking the bay and head south along coast road to Applecross.
From Applecross inland over the cattle road (highest road in britian). Very do-able in a healthy van.
Fort William is nice. Superb campsite at Glen Nevis.All possible facilities.
Good campsite at Balloch on Loch Lomond – You could get the train into Glasgow centre. Remember to park your Scottish tourer motorhome safely in scotland
