Important information and facts about Edinburgh

Conquer Edinburgh by motorhome

Discover Edinburgh and the comfort of travelling in a campervan. Rent a campervan quickly and easily with campstar and enjoy the new freedom and flexibility on holiday. The Scottish capital Edinburgh is an ideal destination for travelling in campervan and caravan. As soon as you arrive, you can rent your camper van and drive straight to the Royal Mile in Edinburgh: The view from Edinburgh Castle is spectacular! 

Rent a camper in Edinburgh and explore Scotland

Legendary festivals

The trendy Scottish city looks back on an interesting history. Numerous sights and the mix of old and new enchant visitors, museums, exhibitions and festivals entertain an international audience. Speaking of spectacular festivals: Festival City Edinburgh hosts interesting events all year round and one of the biggest is the International Festival and Fringe.

Well equipped - the campsite in Edinburgh 

For the Edinburgh Festival, it is recommended to stay at the West Gate campsite, as this is where the camping festival-goers and performers end the day relaxing. The campsite at the Royal Highland Centre has a range of facilities and secure pitches. It takes about 20 minutes to get to the festival site by 24-hour bus. In between events, explore the city's beautiful streets, historic alleyways and many great views - as the Scottish capital stretches over seven hills. 

Edinburgh Adventure - a holiday for all 

The Edinburgh area is an experience for nature-loving enthusiasts. Nature lovers stay overnight everywhere in Scotland! All that applies to free camping is the Scottish Outdoor Access Code. Don't worry, the rules are straightforward: Respect nature and leave no trace when you leave. If you travel by plane, you can rent your campervan immediately after arrival and start exploring the impressive nature in Edinburgh! 

Motorhome hire Edinburgh - for all weathers 

The main season for visiting Scotland is from April to October. In a comfortable campervan, however, the city and nature can be toured all year round - and it rains less on the east coast of Great Britain than on the west coast. But here, too, four seasons in one day are quite possible, because the British Isles are known for their changeable weather. Despite all the weather caprices, the Scottish countryside is always worth exploring. 

If the weather is not so good, visit one of the city's interesting museums - such as the National Museum of Scotland. The National Gallery is also a magnet for visitors from all over the world. If you plan your campervan holiday in the winter months, the area around Edinburgh is considered one of the best places to see the Northern Lights. 

Travelling by train or plane and want to rent a campervan in Edinburgh? Edinburgh Airport is only about 30 minutes from the city. Glasgow International Airport is around 50 minutes away. 

Protection and landmark - Edinburgh Castle 

Probably the most famous Scottish street is the Royal Mile. It measures exactly one Scottish mile and is lined with shops and traditional pubs. This makes the popular boulevard the perfect destination for an evening stroll. At the end of the Mile, the legendary Edinburgh Castle towers high above the city. The views from the Scottish castle will inspire you. Want more? - No problem, because it goes even higher. 

Edinburgh's local mountain 

It is 251 metres to the viewing platform of the city's local mountain. The camper van stays in the car park and you set off on foot. But then a great view of the entire surroundings opens up on "Arthur's Seat" - a climb that pays off! 

Night owls, culture lovers and nature lovers 

Scotland, with its interesting cities, islands and Highlands, does justice to all. As one of the most beautiful European cities and offers great diversity - in addition to history, culture and numerous sights. Hire a campervan to stay cheaply and comfortably within Scotland's cities too! 

There are also new things to discover on a walk along the city's cobbled streets. The medieval Old Town is unique and provides a successful historical contrast to the trendy Scottish metropolis. Explore Scottish pub culture and treat yourself to a glass of scotch on the Riverside or a plate of the "national dish" in one of the city's best restaurants. You don't know haggis yet? The typical Scottish dish is available on every corner. If you want to recreate haggis, fill a sheep's stomach with heart, liver, kidney fat and the lungs of a sheep. The filling is flavoured with onions and oatmeal. 

Up close and personal - the birthplace of Harry Potter 

The hustle and bustle of the Grassmarket is also entertaining. With many cafés, restaurants, pubs and hotels, the market is a popular meeting place for locals and visitors. There are particularly many shopping opportunities on Price Street. And the Elephant House is an attraction not only for Harry Potter fans anyway. The café is considered the birthplace of the famous fantasy story. 

Edinburgh - the medieval capital of Scotland 

When royal visitors arrive, they traditionally stay at Holyroodhouse. Holyroodhouse is the official residence of the British monarchs in Scotland and members of the Scottish Parliament also stay there. Incidentally, Holyrood Palace is the residence of the kings of Scotland - a place that enchants. 

The city's museums and galleries 

In addition to the National Museum and the National Gallery, Edinburgh's historic old town is worth a visit. Stroll along cobbled streets and past beautifully restored houses on a pub crawl. Don't miss a visit to the unusual Camera Obscura museum, which will delight not only confirmed art fans. 

Immediate vicinity of Edinburgh 

When you rent your campervan in Edinburgh, plan a side trip to Lothian. The nature reserve with its country parks and diverse wildlife impresses with breathtaking landscape formations. The region is home to a variety of attractions, such as the Pentland Hills Park and the sandy beaches of the John Muir Way. A visit to Tantallon Castle with its enchantingly beautiful scenery should also be on your tour itinerary. Situated on the edge of a cliff, East Lothian is easy to reach if you hire a campervan and start your journey in Edinburgh. 

The most beautiful roads for the campervan

If you rent your campervan in Scotland, the Scottish National Tourist Routes are open to you. You can explore a total of 12 routes. For the overnight stay, you can drive to one of the well-equipped campsites or simply park at the roadside. It is also easy to find a nice spot on the Scottish coast. 

The castle as a campsite 

Scottish castles are the highlights of the enchanting surroundings. Travel through Scotland on your own and let yourself be enchanted by its history. If you rent the campervan and plan the tour to Blair Castle in Edinburgh, you can look forward to a campsite directly on the grounds of the Scottish castle. Blair Castle rewards with spectacular views of the National Park and has hosted many royal guests, including Mary Queen of Scots and Queen Victoria. 

The most exciting castles around Edinburgh 

If you want to discover a real fairytale castle, you can rent the campervan and travel directly to the Ayrshire south coast. The dreamlike Culzean Castle awaits you there and sets the mood for the historical exploration tour. Hoddom Castle Park and Scone Palace should also be on your itinerary as special historical sights on a round trip of Scotland. Because even the journey here is an experience: it takes you through typical Scottish landscapes with rolling hills and lots of greenery. 

On four wheels through the Highlands and Lowlands 

A campervan for hire is perfect for your individual discovery tour. Castles like Eilean Donan, the friendly locals, bagpipes, kilts and the tartan pattern characterise the holiday as you cruise comfortably from the Highlands to the islands of the Scottish coast. If there is little time for a beach trip, head to Portobello Beach - for it is only 10 kilometres from Edinburgh. 

Around Edinburgh - Itineraries for the campervan

The famous Scotch Whisky Trails are among the most beautiful travel routes in the world. Tour the coasts and castles of the North Coast 500 or conquer the countryside on the Northeast 250 and Heart 200. See a "Big 5 Wildlife" sign along the way and pass through Scotland's most important national parks and cultural sites. 

Campervan hire - Lots of time for the sea monster 

With a rented campervan, you can travel independently and flexibly through the surrounding countryside. Use this freedom to explore the rich and enchanting history - according to your individual plans. You might even get a snapshot of the legendary Loch Ness monster on your campervan tour. When you rent a campervan, you can set up camp in the most beautiful places around Edinburgh - because free camping is legal in Scotland. 

With the camper on the ferry 

When you rent a campervan, you drive from Edinburgh to the coast. There you take the ferry to tour the large and small islands. The Orkney Islands, the Shetlands, the Hebrides or the Isle of Skye await your visit with the campervan. 

Itineraries for the campervan

We have put together some particularly beautiful route suggestions for your travel plan. If you rent the campervan in Edinburgh to explore the surrounding area, you can drive to the country's most beautiful sights in 10 days, such as: 

- Rides through the Scottish Highlands 

- Legendary castles, ruins, the Argyll Forest, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs. 

Our tip for the Scottish round trip 

Along the spectacular coastal roads you will visit whisky distilleries, take the ferry to the Orkney Islands and the Cairngorms National Park. We recommend planning about 14 days for the almost 1,500 kilometre round trip. 

Tips for trips with the campervan

- You drive on the left in Scotland 

- The European driving licence is valid 

- Fill up with petrol when travelling overland, as there are not always petrol stations in all towns and villages. 

- No toll roads in Scotland 

- Free camping is allowed 

- European Health Insurance Card for full protection 

Driving on the left side of the road is unfamiliar; it should take about half a day to switch to left-hand traffic. 

The code for wild camping 

In Scotland, the campervan is welcome almost everywhere. If you find a suitable spot at the side of the road, you can stay there overnight without any problems. When camping freely, you only need to observe the Scottish Outdoor Access Code

  • The stand is a maximum of 14 km from a road 
  • Prohibition signs and information signs are observed 
  • The square is left clean 

Ben Nevis - worth a booking 

Secure campsites can be found by campervan tourers throughout Scotland. Both availability and facilities of campsites for the campervan are consistently good. Provisions are replenished on the comfortable pitch and there is almost always an electricity connection available. Only in the high season should you book in advance at particularly busy destinations - such as the campsites around Ben Nevis. 

Independent on holiday - renting a campervan in scotland

It is recommended that you rent your campervan in advance or directly after arrival and stay overnight in Edinburgh. This way you can start your Scottish holiday tour relaxed and stress-free in your cozy home on wheels. For your individual travel plans, the flexible holiday in a campervan is an ideal alternative. Along the most beautiful Scottish national roads, visit castles and palaces or let yourself be impressed by the unique landscape of the Scottish Highlands. Relax whenever you feel like it, take rest breaks and find an idyllic place to spend the night in nature at any time. 

Around Edinburgh, the international trend metropolis, you will find numerous sights, culinary specialities and of course the real Scotch whisky. Stop off in the city's authentic pubs and stay overnight where you like. With caravans and campervans, camping around Edinburgh is free and easy - simply follow the itinerary or stay at one of the comfortable and safe campsites. You can even save money in the city by renting and staying in a campervan.
