While the Scottish access rights don’t apply to motor vehicles, the South of Scotland has many camping and caravan sites for you to choose from. These sites are a great option for an overnight stay. You’ll have some useful facilities at-hand, all while supporting the local community.

If you do decide to camp outside of traditional sites, it’s good to note that while you can drive up to 15 yards off a public road to park, most unpaved roads, unfenced land and beaches are private property. You won’t have a right to park in these places unless given permission by the landowner.

Before we send you on your way, we’ve made a list of things to bear in mind while camping in a  campervan or motorhome.
