Mini Camper is a perfect 2 berth camper for backpackers or a couple looking to adventure out into the beautiful Scottish Highlands. So far this summer at Trax has been super busy with all the hires but we do still have some availability for our Mini Camper and of course we do have some availability for a 4 berth campervan. The bigger camper vans sleep 4 people. These are great when travelling with friends or family. Our website will inform you of all the details you need to know about your camper hire, such as insurance, where the collection & drop off point is and any extras that you would like to add to your hire. We understand that everyone wants to make sure it is all set correctly before collecting your Mini Camper, so please if you do have any questions send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org and our rental representatives will be more than happy to answer any of your questions.
If you are backpacking this summer then why not try NC500 routes? This is quickly becoming one of the most sought after routes on the planet, this really is a must. There are so many routes you can choose from the NC500. Make sure you stop at the smaller villages and take some of the more alternative whisky tours. Here at Trax, we always say get off the main road and drift off on the beaten tracks. Mini Camper is ideal for the smaller width beaten roads as it’s more compact in size. Don’t be thrown off though, there is lots of storage inside, like underneath the bed and inside cupboards. We suggest bringing soft luggage and backpacks because they are much easier to fold away compared to a sturdy suitcase.
If you haven’t yet thought about where you are travelling in your Mini Camper then read on as we will give you some hints on some hidden tucked away gems that not everyone will find! But hey, we would love to hear your own recommendations too and send us your photos that we can share on our social media @trax_adventure
Fort William is located in Lochaber in the West Highlands. The town is often described as the ‘Outdoor Capital of UK’. There are plenty of things to do here, such as enjoying a walk on sandy beaches with a beer, if you would have stayed at Glasgow Camping then you wouldn’t have been able to enjoy the beaches - Just sayin’! The popular movie has been filmed here, I think you all know what it is - we’ll give you a hint! You can explore the Jacobite Steam Train. Do you enjoy Kayaking? This is a great place to whack out your Kayak and explore the lakes.
Isle of Skye
Isle of Skye is by far a popular destination by many of our travellers' wish lists! Whether they are travelling from abroad or within the UK, Isle of Skye is always on their list to visit. Mini Camper can be parked easily on the side while you are walking around the island and also, if you are planning on wild camping you only need to find a smaller place whereas with a campervan you would have to find a larger area to stay overnight. Go and visit the original distillery here, it is set on shores of Loch Harport with excellent views of the Cuillins. Of course, you can enjoy the Single Malt whisky yourself too! We recommend visiting the historic museum! Once you step inside the museum it will feel like you are stepping into an old Highland village. The museum offers a true insight of how it was 100 years ago.
Mini Camper adventures don’t end there! No way! We have yet to mention our greatest little hidden gem at Durness Beach. Pssttt we have been here a few weeks ago and we cannot recommend enough. If you like a bit of adventure this is a fun one, trust us. Once you arrive at Durness beach you will see a zip line. Well this zipline is called Golden Eagle Zipline and once you are on there the views are absolutely incredible!
There is a great spot for Kayaking on the Great Glen Canoe Trail, this trail follows an ancient route along the Caledonian Canal then from Fort William to Inverness while you are passing through the Loch Ness. What better way to explore the Loch Ness than being in the loch yourself! We almost forgot to mention the Loch Ness 360 trail. This is a 80-mile trip that can be completed either walking or cycling and it runs around the whole Loch Ness.
We hope these adventure recommendations have been very useful and that we will hopefully see you soon at Trax in Scotland.
