3 of the Best Holidays in Scotland

Readers of top travel books “Rough Guide” voted Scotland “The Most Beautiful Country in the World” in 2017. So this could be the year you should visit Scotland before the rest of the world gets here.

If you live in the UK, with exchange rates being as they are, it’s a great year to get to know Scotland better.

If you’re travelling from outside Great Britain, there’s a good chance you’ll get more pounds for your local currency in 2018 than previously.

We were also sent lots of brilliant photos of Meg the splitscreen microbus, at weddings and on day trips but as they were usually taken by professional photographers, it wouldn’t be fair to share them here. Thanks to all our 2014 guests who shared photos with us of their VW dreams becoming reality.

Time to get planning, the 2015 roadtrip is about to begin: will it be the year for your Vintage VW Campers adventure?
