Autumn is one of the most beautiful times for a holiday in Scotland and if you are travelling by campervan or motorhome you’ll find it easy to visit many hotspot locations for seasonal colour and scenery.
From vibrant leaves, to bright berries and crisp, clear days, a Scottish autumn is truly a feast for your eyes.
Here are 10 great places to see spectacular autumn views in Scotland:

Sutherland, in the far north of Scotland, is beautiful at any time of year but as this photograph shows in autumn it takes on a surreal look. The landscape is seen from Loch Fleet over Alders Nature Reserve and towards the mountain of Creag am Amalaidh.
