Recommended Campsites Aires and Stopovers in Scotland
Stopovers at pubs are a great alternative to campsites for overnight motorhome parking. Pub stopovers are dotted all over the country, Some are aware of the benefit of this idea and are listed in the Britstops Guide Book, but find one that isn’t and you have your very own stopover allowing you to sample their delicious food, warm welcome and great beer – what more could you need?

Most pubs with a car park are possible stopovers and phoning in advance to ask if it is possible is a great idea. The Britstops Guide mentions hundreds of pub stopovers across the UK that are exactly what you are looking for. So give it ago Find a pub on Google Maps that has a Car Park and give them a call!
