Motorhome Hire Lothian

One of the richest areas of Scotland when it comes to attractions, Lothian is able to boast both hip city stays and charming rural escapes. Head just a short distance from Edinburgh and there’s a great choice of destinations, from the coastline at Gullane Sands to Traprain Law Iron Age Hillfort and the Pentland Hills. Running for more than 30 kilometres in length, they are the region’s top outdoor playground, making hiking, horse riding, mountain biking and skiing (at Midlothian Snowsports Center) all possible. Getting a motorhome hire in Lothian will allow you to explore the town of North Berwick provides phenomenal views of the Firth of Forth and the UNESCO-enshrined Forth Rail Bridge, as well as the largest northern gannet colony in the world at Bass Rock.

Survival Guide

  • A main meal for two at a restaurant in the centre of Edinburgh can cost €60 including drinks, while elsewhere in Lothian you can find meals for roughly half that amount.
  • A pint (half a litre) of beer will cost €2-3.
  • Pickpocketing is an issue in the central areas of Edinburgh, especially around Princes Street and Edinburgh Castle.

Gastronomy

The eastern part of Lothian is often called Scotland’s ‘food and drink county’. Main meals tend to include staples such as neeps (turnips) and tatties (potatoes) alongside meats. In this traditional fishing and farming country, good vegetarian alternatives can be hard to find. Haggis, a rich dish of minced offal, is the obvious meal to sample, while the haddock soup known as Cullen skink is another Scottish favourite. There are several whisky distilleries in the region with tasting rooms, but be aware drivers are only permitted 22 mg of alcohol per 100 ml of breath, equivalent to less than a pint of beer

Annual Events in Lothian

  •  Burns Night, January 25th. Commemorating Scotland’s national poet, Robert (Rabbie) Burns, the day is celebrated across Lothian with a special supper of haggis accompanied by songs and poetry. See survival guide for pricing.
  • Beltane Fire Festival, Carlton Hill, Edinburgh, April. A contemporary take on ancient Celtic tradition, this event brightens the night sky with a heady mix of ritual and fun. Free.
  • Hogmanay, December 31st. Scotland’s New Year’s Eve celebrations rival anything put on south of the border. Edinburgh’s concert and fireworks display is by far the grandest, while even the smallest communities will be marking the night in some way. Edinburgh Hogmanay tickets cost €37 for adults.
