Old traditions meet new thinking on these green Scotland stays
• Orkney in the world’s first all-electric campervan
For the past five years, Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis has been home to a fleet of rentable electric cars powered from points where the electricity is generated by wind. And with 11 charge points now strategically placed from Lewis in the north to Barra in the south – drivers can traverse the full Outer Hebrides chain without using a drop of petrol. Take your tent as wild camping is permitted and there are few beaches anywhere to match those here.
