Planning to rent a motorhome in Edinburgh? A cosmopolitan rendezvous for royalty and Europe’s largest fine arts festival capital, Edinburgh cultivates an energizing atmosphere for visitors of all ages and interests. Its rolling green hills, unusual castle, and historical monuments should satisfy nature lovers with its iconic beauty as much as it does history fans and artists. When you rent an RV in Edinburgh, you'll enjoy the freedom to extend your camping trip in Scotland's hottest cities, including Glasgow, Aberdeen, and Inverness.
Drop off your Edinburgh camper rental for a day and head towards the city center to walk the Royal Mile of Scotland. This stretch of road connects Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace, forming a mile-long walk past Scotland’s royal palaces. Sieges, tales of mystery, and various kings and queens have reigned upon this majestic rock.
Forming the backdrop and highest point in Holyrood Park, Arthur’s Seat is a dormant volcano that offers incredible views for those willing to make the hike. Meanwhile, the cliff face of Salisbury Crags overlooks the city and its surrounding countryside. Alternatively, you can journey below ground through the Real Mary King’s Close. It’s buried deep beneath Edinburgh’s Royal Mile and contains a series of hidden streets that have remained unchanged since the 17th century.
Another road, not quite as dark, is Princes Street. This popular shopping street, a route for parades and home to the iconic Flower Clock, runs through downtown Edinburgh. Along the way, meander into the Prince Street Gardens, which have been divided into two spaces with monuments, fountains, and festivities of many kinds all year round. Venture to the notorious photographed Calton Hill, known for its Athenian Acropolis and observatory for stargazers. This hard-to-miss sight runs east of Princes Street within central Edinburgh.
Aberlady Bay, 17 miles from Edinburgh, starts from the coastal village of Aberlady and ends near the town of Gullane in East Lothian. Don’t let this sandy beach surrounded by wetlands disguise its treasures. The wrecks of two XT-class midget submarines are visible during low tide. The vessels, which were used as target practice for the Royal Navy, were abandoned in 1946 and remain semi-submerged beneath the sandy shores. Even from the beach, visitors can see these World War II remains.
Drive your Edinburgh RV rental outside the city center to the Edinburgh Caravan Club Site. There’s an on-site golf course, playground, and play areas as well as electric hookups, gas, laundry facilities, and family bathrooms. It’s an idyllic choice for a campervan holiday at any time of the year. A mere 15-minute walk to the bus stop and visitors will be in Edinburgh’s downtown in no time at all! While in Firth of Forth, pay a visit to the seaside village of Cramond, which hosts the ruins of medieval Cramond tower.
Four miles from the center of Edinburgh on a peaceful country estate is the Mortonhall Caravan and Camping Park. An excellent place to park your motorhome rental near Edinburgh, this campground perfectly combines city and country living. Included in your stay are priceless, spectacular views of Pentland Hills, Salisbury Crags, and Arthur’s Seat. The information desk makes purchasing bus tickets simple and offers tidbits for your Edinburgh traveling adventures. Take advantage of the fully stocked shop, BBQ hut, play areas, and the impeccably kept laundry, dishwashing, and recycling facilities that keep Scotland both green and clean.
Rent an RV in Edinburgh and go see attractions that are only a bus ride away. Edinburgh Zoo is only three miles from the city center. Visitors have the opportunity to view over 1,000 rare and endangered species and the UK’s only pandas! Edinburgh Zoo has become one of Europe’s leaders for conservation efforts, educating the public and undertaking research projects. It’s one of Scotland’s most popular places to visit and is open every day, excluding Christmas. Set your sights on the Royal Yacht Britannia, the seabound home to Her Majesty the Queen for over 40 years has sailed at least one million miles and covered all of the seven seas. Now moored permanently near Ocean Terminal in Leith, this majestic vessel is open to visitors.
Tour the Edinburgh Castle, home to the Scottish Crown Jewels and the Stone of Destiny. See for yourself why this has been an ancient symbol of the Scottish monarchy and used to host previous British coronations. In fact, Edinburgh Castle is just as prepared as Westminster Abbey to host the next coronation.
At the end of the Royal Mile is the Palace of Holyroodhouse, also known as the Queen's official Scottish residence. Queen Elizabeth II isn’t the only royal who has lived in this fortress. You may have heard of Mary Queen of Scots or Bonnie Prince Charlie, who have held court in the very same halls. Even with a history dating back to the 12th century, the Queen still resides here during Royal Week every year. Children and family will find this an interactive palace full of galleries laden with ornate jewels and objects, not to mention a kaleidoscope of colors in the Palace Gardens.
Perhaps you’d like to take a break from the history and get your festival on! Festival Fringe, Book and Film Festivals, the Royal Military Tattoo, Storytelling Festival, and Hogmanay are just a few of the world-class events that take place in Edinburgh each year. You can join in the exhilarating entertainment no matter when you decide to book an RV in Edinburgh.
