Honeymooning in a Motorhome
Planning your wedding will have almost certainly caused stress. A honeymoon is going to be one of the best ways to destress and be one of the most romantic breaks of your life and what better way to enjoy it than hiring a luxury motorhome?
Why chose a motorhome?
It’s as easy as picking your dates, packing your suitcases, and turning up – there is no need to worry about airport delays or long transfers to a hotel. You can enjoy planning your trip together and having your first trip together as a married couple.
Our luxury Skye model is perfect for a honeymoon as it’s a couples only vehicle.
The front of the motorhome consists of a spacious area for sitting enjoying a meal together with lots of living space and an L shape kitchen for whoever is on cooking duties.
The rear of the motorhome has a fixed island bed with access from both sides (no need to wake each other if getting up during the night) and has a toilet area with separate shower area.
Where to go?
With over 30 years of motorhome experience we can offer lots of advice and guidance to help you with the perfect trip. Depending on how many nights you plan to hire for routes can be adapted. We highly recommend our West Coast Route.
Aviemore is just under a 2-hour drive from our depot in Perth, with lots of places to park up safely you can enjoy a romantic walk around Loch Morlich, or if your more adventurous why not book some water sports or tree top trails.
If you are holidaying with us for 10 or more nights, we’d recommend then heading to Ullapool to jump on the ferry and heading to the Outer Hebrides for the most romantic walks along the beaches and lots of local gin sampling. However, if your holiday is under 10 nights, we recommend a night at Broomfield Caravan Park on the banks of Lochbroom watching the ferries and nipping to The Seafood Shack for some locally sourced sea food that’s cooked to order.
After your night at the campsite, it’s a 10-minute drive back down the A835 and then turn right on the A832 and head for Gairloch stopping at Inverewe Gardens where you can explore the gardens or take a wildlife boat trip with many beautiful photo opportunities. Ensure to have your camera at the ready, the photo opportunities are stunning.
You will almost certainly have built up an appetite after a day taking in the gardens so would recommend now heading to Applecross where you have the option to wild camp or stay on the campsite – visiting the Applecross inn for some delicious food and drinks (however the pub is currently closed on Tuesdays) It’s now time to settle down for the night ready to drive the famous Bealach Na Ba in the morning.
After enjoying some of the most beautiful scenery imaginable it’s time to head to Eilan Donan Castle when the beautiful setting continues. Eilan Donan Castle is one of the most famously photographed Castle in Scotland. Featuring in films including James Bond and Highlander, its somewhere to visit – just to say you have been!
Kyle of Lochalsh would be our next recommendation and parking up for the night in Kinloch Campsite, there’s many things you can do in the Isle of Skye including Talisker distillery, visiting the Old Man of Storr, whatever you do don’t forget to visit the fairy pools. It’s truly breath taking.
If you would like to have a trip on a ferry, then we’d advise heading from Armadale to Maliag. The beaches in Arisaig can put beaches all over the world to shame, with the golden sand and crystal-clear waters it’s a perfect location to have a romantic walk, you can also book a trip to go dolphin watching or stop nearby Glenfinnan Viaduct and look out for the steam train (featuring in Harry Potter)
Its now time to head to the outdoor capital of Scotland Fort William where you can either wild camp or stay on Glen Nevis campsite. If you are a Harry Potter fan you can jump on the steam train that you may have managed to spot going over the Glenfinnan Viaduct. If you aren’t a fan of the steam train why not visit the longest stair gate in Britain and stop at Neptune Staircase, you can take a leisurely stroll and watch the boats coming along.
It’s now time to start making your way back to Perth. If you fancy stopping at a harbour town Oban would be a fantastic little stop off, here you can visit McCraigs Tower, here you can have a romantic walk around the tower and read about the fascinating story behind it. Why not then nip into the town and have a wander round the local shops?
We would then recommend on your last night heading to Stirling and staying at Witches Craig campsite, this gives you the opportunity to fill up the LPG, begin packing things up ready for handing the van back the next day.
