One of the largest cities in Scotland, Glasgow offers tourists a wealth of activities, from shopping opportunities and cultural attractions to easy access to the famous Scottish Highlands as well as the capital city of Edinburgh. Glasgow has been a center of learning since the mid-15th century, and its diverse student population proves this reputation is still alive and well today. While the winters tend to be bitterly cold and the summers cloudy and brisk, Glasgow keeps visitors coming back year after year.

Due to its old streets and layout, driving a caravan rental in Glasgow may not be the most convenient way to see the city center. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to get around without driving. Central Glasgow is connected by a network of buses as well as the underground.

Scotland is often considered one of the most naturally beautiful places in the world, so you'll want to take your time exploring the countryside. A home on wheels lets you do just that without sacrificing your creature comforts. When you book an RV in Glasgow, you'll enjoy the freedom to experience the natural treasures of Scotland at your leisure.

Discover Glasgow

The Great Outdoors

Many small country parks in and around Glasgow offer a quiet break from the city to get some fresh air and unwind. However, if you're looking to get lost in a vast wilderness, then head north out of the city and into the Highlands. Here, you’ll find lush landscapes and other major cities like Inverness and Aberdeen.

If you don’t want to drive your Glasgow motorhome rental all the way into the Highlands, then only an hour west of the city is Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park. This lush oasis is overflowing with opportunities for outdoor adventurers. You can go for a hike on the Scottish moors and look out over the water, or go sailing or canoeing in the waterways.

For a glimpse of the "real Scotland", head north to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. Here, you can go hiking over diverse terrains. Choose one of the easier trails, or challenge yourself on the steep incline to the summit of Ben Lomond, where you'll be rewarded with outstanding panoramas of the lake and distant mountain peaks. Push yourself even further with rock climbing or water activities, such as kayaking. If you want something a little more leisurely, take a cruise on the loch so you can sit back and relax — but keep an eye out for legendary loch monsters.

If you can't get enough of the scenic Scottish Highlands, then drive your Glasgow RV rental about 150 miles north to Cairngorms National Park. Dozens of hiking trails take you past stunning alpine and pastoral scenery. Along the way, you'll uncover countless cultural sites, from ancient castles and manor houses to quaint villages. As you travel around the park and look up at the imposing cliff faces and mountains, you’ll understand why people travel from all over the world to see the Scottish Highlands.

Camping in Glasgow

After driving around the breathtaking landscapes of Scotland, you’ll need to find a place to park your motorhome rental near Glasgow. Luckily, there are a few campgrounds to choose from in the area.

Just east of town is the Red Deer Village Holiday Park, located near the Seven Lochs Wetland Park and Drumpellier Country Park. You'll have a choice of paved or grassy sites with electrical hookups, as well as access to restrooms, showers, laundry facilities, and a nearby shop. The campground is easily accessible via bus or subway, so feel free to leave your motorhome rental parked while you venture into the city.

To the southeast of Glasgow is Strathclyde Country Park Caravan Park Site. Near the Strathclyde Country Park at Strathclyde Loch, this caravan park offers basic accommodation options for your Glasgow motorhome rental. You’ll have access to electrical hookups, Wi-Fi, and laundry facilities. Once you've set up camp, venture into Strathclyde Country Park so you can enjoy hiking and water sports, such as kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, and even bumper boats.

Exploring the City

After driving your motorhome rental from Glasgow up and down the Highlands, you’ll want to return to the city and see a little more of what metropolitan Glasgow has to offer.

No visit to Glasgow is complete without stopping by the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. Highlights for art enthusiasts include masterpieces by household names like Dali, Rembrandt, Monet, and van Gogh. Animal lovers should make time to see the extensive collection of taxidermy animals and fossils, while antique guns and weapons are sure to astonish military history buffs. This is just a small sampling of the thousands of artifacts on display, so plan to spend a few hours perusing this vast museum.

Glasgow Cathedral should also be somewhere near the top of your itinerary. Wander through this medieval place of worship, admiring the intricate stained glass windows and awe-inspiring architecture. One of the main draws is the tomb of Saint Mungo, patron saint of Glasgow, for whom this church was built in the 12th century.

Had enough history? Get a dose of fresh air at Glasgow Botanic Gardens in the upscale West End district. The gardens and greenhouses protect a diverse variety of plants from all over the world, from desert cacti to tranquil woodlands. After indulging in a hot beverage at the tea rooms, wander along the River Kelvin and keep your camera handy to capture the scenic views.

After a day out and about, be sure to stop off at a local pub and treat yourself to a heaping plate of bangers and mash, or, if you’ve got a strong stomach, try some haggis.
