How to Plan a Scotland Trip
If you're planning a trip to Scotland, then there's a few things you'll want to know. Lucky for you, we've already experienced this first hand and have compiled all our learned knowledge into this short, easy to read list. :) The most important thing to remember is that in Scotland they allow wild camping, meaning as long as there's no posted signs saying you can't park overnight, or as long as you don't trespass into private property, you'll be able to park your RV or Campervan wherever you'd like to spend the night.

Our 14 Day Scotland Itinerary
Although this trip generally follows the exact 2 week roadtrip we took through Scotland, we made a few tweaks and changes that should make it smoother and easier for you to follow. (Basically, we learned from our mistakes and don't want you to repeat them.) Although we took an RV through Scotland, this could just as easily be done with an easier-to-drive compact car, and we've included possible hotel stays for each location if you choose to do this instead, which will help make your Scotland road trip the easiest one you've ever planned! Of course, each stop can be added to or taken out to personalize it. ;)

Day 2 : Lamberton
Day 3 : St. Andrews
