Campervans, motorhomes and roof-top tents

Remember that access rights do not include motor vehicles.

Overnight stays in campervans, motorhomes and roof-top tents


Access rights do not include motor vehicles. If public or private land owners restrict or regulate parking on their land, you must comply with this.

At all times, minimise your impact by:

  • Following the Highway Code and the guidance in the Scottish Outdoor Access Code, including the specific advice on car parking. Respect the interests of others, care for the environment and take responsibility for your own actions.

  • Planning ahead and booking into managed caravan/camp sites and other provision for campervans and motorhomes where possible.

More information about campsites and caravan parks can be found at Scottish Camping; Visit Scotland; and at VisitScotland iCentres.
