Adventure means different things to different people and so it’s just as well Scotland has got a little bit of everything. From adrenaline-filled activities to discovering hidden walks, there is something for everyone – all very much enjoyable from comfort of your own campervan.
One of our favourite ways to see the just how beautiful Scotland and its nature (other than in a motorhome!) is by kayak. Sea kayaking offers a fantastic opportunity to experience wildlife up close and personal. If you want to see seals, otters and a whole host of birds in their own environment then this is for you – and is something that all the family can take part in no matter what your experience. Based in the West Coast, near Fort William why not try Rockhopper or closer to Outthere Campers and located in Aviemore is Kayak Scotland.
If you’re looking for something that gets the blood pumping why not try your hand at a zip line and high ropes course. An obstacle course in the trees it’s a great test of agility – and one that the kids usually give the adults a run for their money for. Courses can be found all over Scotland including the Nevis Range, Aberfoyle (where Go Ape has some of the longest zip lines in the country) and Rothiemurchus Estate set in the ancient Caledonian Pines of the Cairngorm Mountains.
Something that draws people from all over the world to Scotland is mountain biking. With a network of trails, the length and breadth of the country it’s so easy to hop from one in Skye - such as the incredible Bealach Brittle which starts at the Fairy Pools in Glen Brittle and offers superb views of the Skye Cuillins – to the east coast where the Capel Mounth Trail in Glen Doll invites those with a little more practise to take on the challenging climb.
