Five Sisters of Kintail

If you love hiking or are looking to bag some Munros why not hire one of our motorhomes and visit Glen Coe. The Five Sisters are a well known landmark and a popular hillwalking expedition. Three of the Five Sisters are classified as full Munros and the ridge continues unbroken to the east where it takes in a further three Munros, known as the Brothers.

No motorhome or campervan trip to Scotland would be complete without a visit to the stunning Isle of Skye. Lying off the west coast of Scotland Skye has beautiful mountain scenery, fascinating geology, stunning sea lochs and plenty of wildlife.
