Highlights of Scotland

Scotland is an adventure waiting to happen. Our first stop Edinburgh is home to the legendary Edinburgh Festival, but there are eleven less crowded months to enjoy its charms. Take in the Old Town's wynds, the cosy pubs of Cockburn Street Leith’s waterfront, the majestic Royal Mile and the Palace of Holyrood House.
Park the van up near Aviemore to spend a pine-scented night soothed by the sound of water stay at Highrange Touring park. Drive north further still to catch the Northern Lights in winter. Head here in summer for its pristine beaches and historic Dundee. Balmoral castle is where the Royal Family holiday - and you can nearly stay here too - on the peaceful Tarland by Deeside campsite.
Head west to Aboyne where the annual Highland Games are held and then to spectacular Pitlochry to spot a golden eagle check out Faskally campsite. Stunning Loch Lomond and the Trossachs aren't far away, either. Everyone needs to spend one night camped under the watchful eye of these breathtaking mountains on the shores of Loch Leven stay at Caolasnacon campsite. It's a short hop from here to Glasgow and back to city life before driving southwards towards our Hampshire HQ.

Highlights of Wales

Wales - famed for its pubs, food and friendly welcome. Think bracing surf, mystic castles, stuff of legend and a majestic landscape and it’s only half the story. Chuck in a few literary greats and some gorgeous camping, and a 7-day tour of Wales is never going to be quite long enough.First stop is the capital city of Cardiff, Europe's Capital of Sport 2014. See the bay, step into its castles or stop off for a bit of retail therapy. Then make headway for Swansea, gateway to the Gower. Perfect for a walk and a dip in the bracing surf. Don't miss spectacular Rhossili and park up at beautiful Three Cliffs Bay Caravan Park where you can watch the sun set over the sea from your Kamper.Mystic Carmarthenshire is home to castles of legend such as Laugharne and Kidwell, and is also Dylan Thomas country. Brecon and its Beacons will warrant an explore from the prettily named Faerie Thyme campsite before you take to rugged North Wales. It’s here you’ll discover the mountain town of Dolgellau in the heart of Snowdonia before setting up camp under Cader Idris at Graig Wen. Then drive the Kamper through dramatic mountain scenes to Llandudno and Conwy - home to Blue Flag beaches and World Heritage castles - before heading back to our Hampshire HQ.
