We traveled by a campervan that we rented at Big tree campervans. It was a great type of transport, even if it was mid Autumn, we were perfectly warm throughout the night and enjoyed some of the best wild camping places in Scotland! All the camping parks we stayed at were excellent, clean, warm and well equipped with all that you need. The only thing we have to complain about was lack of internet access in some of them.
Among all the places we slept at during our Scotland road trip we loved the most the glamping huts at Down on the farm and Rubersview shepherds hut. This was a totally new experience for us and we loved the cuteness, coziness and particularity of these two places.
So, briefly for the conclusion: for us, approximately two weeks are quite enough to visit mainland Scotland, the best way to travel around is by a campervan and you can spice it up by a stay or two in a glamping hut.
We hope our Scotland itinerary will help you to organize your trip.
