Scotland mother nature is a sight to behold. It provides you with the most breath taking scenery and memories that will never leave you, they will leave a lasting imprint upon your heart. Scotland is known by many to be one of the most beautiful countries in the world and quite rightly so. We believe the best way to explore Scotland 7 natural wonders is by motorhome, a motorhome gives you flexibility and the freedom to roam unlike have a car and booking into B&B's where your more tied to a locations on certain days.
What to expect from the motorhome.
A motorhome is like a hotel room on wheels, we use the motorhome ourselves and know exactly what you need to have a stress free holiday exploring Scotland, a sat nav comes with the motorhome and this is preprogrammed with places to wild camp, empty the chemical toilet and fill up with fresh water. The motorhome comes fully kitted out with everything you need (included in the cost - no hidden extras) so pack a suitcase as if you were going to a hotel and we will do the rest.
Please remember that we do pick ups from airports and train stations so if you wish to visit Edinburgh for example why not stay the night before you join us. Get picked up from a prearranged location and make your holiday special from the very beginning. Please ensure you book this at your original booking to avoid disappointment during peak times.
The 7 Natural Wonders of Scotland
- Isle ofSkye, If its Skye your off to there are a few places to ensure you visit here. The Quiraing is an wonderful walk and would make a fantastic family day out. This walk would not be suitable for very young children or buggies as it is rough terrain. However the feeling of tired heavy legs will soon disappear when you take in the beautiful sights around you. Pack a picnic and plenty of water or even a flask and make a day trip here.
- Whilst in Skye ensure you take a dip by the fairy pools, literally if your brave enough to dip into the icy waters and let them transport you to a magical world. Young and old alike will be mesmerized by these beautiful pools. The sound of the water, the colors and of course the greenery surrounding them.
- Fingals Cave, over on the Isle of Staffa you will find the remarkable Fingals cave. This island is uninhabited however it is very well known to tourists for the cave itself. The 6 sided columns of rock are formed from Basalt the same as you will find on the Giants Causeway in Northern Ireland. Here you will be able to catch a glimpse of many different species of birds which choose to nest on the cliffs and grassy areas. In order to visit here hop on a ferry from Mull.
- Luskentyre Sands, If it’s the sandy beaches abroad your missing you need not be disappointed. When you travel over to Harris you will find yourself transported to the best beaches there are to find. Luskentyre Sands has miles of white sandy dunes and gorgeous waters.
- The Old Man of Hoy is not really an old man or a living being. It’s the United Kingdoms tallest sea stack which rises a staggering 137m out of the sea. Located on Hoy (part of the Orkney archipelago) it has been separated from land through years of erosion from the sea and the wind. There is currently only one leg left if you like originally this incredible natural wonder had and arch with two legs. Its actually possible to see the Old Man from the ferry crossing Scrabster to Stromness if you don’t have time to visit up close.
- Finnich Glen and the Devils Pulpit is located in Stirlingshire. This has become a more popular site on interest since the series Outlander has parts filmed here.
- The Devils Pulpit is actually a mystical circular shaped rock. The steps leading down to the glen are known as the devils steps. There is planning to build a visitors Centre here as it has become so popular.
- Duncansby Head is home to two sea stacks by John O Groats, the true Northern point is at Duncansby itself and that it where the two sea shacks are located. Its is a boggy area with cliff edges. It makes a wonderful day out from John O Groats itself up to the sea shacks and back again. Be sure to snap some photos as who knows how long they will remain as they are.
These are just a small handful of Scotland natural wonders, you wont have to travel far to start seeing all this wonder for yourself when you leave the Scottish Tourer Depot.
