Take the Slow Road: Scotland: Inspirational Journeys Round the Highlands, Lowlands and Islands of Scotland by Camper Van and Motorhome [9781844865383]

(3 reviews) Write a Review

Forget hurrying. Forget putting your foot down and racing through sweeping bends.

Forget the understeer (whatever that is). Forget the blur of a life lived too fast.

This is a look at taking life slowly. It's about taking the time to enjoy journeys and places for their own sake. It's about stopping and putting the kettle on.

Stopping to take a picture. Stopping to enjoy stopping. How are you going to do it? In a camper van or a motorhome, of course.

In this book we define the best driving routes around Scotland for camper vans and motorhomes.

We show you the coolest places to stay, what to see, what to do and explain why it's special.

We meander around the highlands, lowlands and islands of Scotland on the most breathtaking roads, chugging up mountain passes and pootling along the coast. We show you stuff that's fun, often free. We include the best drives for different kinds of drivers; for surfers, wildlife watchers, climbers and walkers. We include the steepest, the bendiest, those with the most interesting bridges or views or obstacles, ferries and tidal causeways.

And you don't even have to own a camper van or motorhome - we'll tell you the many places you can rent one to take you on the journey.

All of this is interspersed with beautiful photos, handy maps and quirky travel writing from the king of camper vans and motorhomes, Martin Dorey.

So if all you want to do is flick through it on a cold day and plan your next outing, you'll be transported (albeit slowly) to pastures, beaches, mountains and highways that make you want to turn the key and go, go, go!

We'll take you to see Scotland the slow way. The way it should be seen.

    Posted by Angela Dowdeswell on 19th Feb 2021

    I bought this book for my husband. We are planning a trip to Scotland in our campervan in the summer.

    He has not had his nose out of the book since I bought it. We’ve now got lots of ideas for our trip.
