Enjoy a Highland fling, see 2017's hottest ’vans, check out our Motorhome of the Year contenders and much more, in our October issue – on sale now

Let our latest magazine inspire your next staycation as we visit Scotland. Join our Group Editor Alastair Clements as he packs his family into a Benimar Mileo 313 and sets off on a magical Highland tour of mountains and beaches, cable car rides, monster-hunting, breathtaking views and the odd wee dram – well, it would be rude not to! Fancy some wild camping? Follow Alison and Martin Wilson’s adventures as they tour through the Great Glen in their Mandale. Or head east with Andria Massey in her Hymer, as she and partner Pearl go to St Andrew’s, Dornoch and much more on their 16-day trip. It’s proof, were it needed, that just because summer is coming to a close doesn’t mean it’s time to pack up the ’van, there’s tonnes to see and do right here in the UK!

And to make sure you make the most of the rest of the summer holidays, the new issue of Practical Motorhome also brings you part two of our A to Z of summer touring. From expert advice to hone your photography skills and our guide to the best of British wine, to awe-inspiring walks and the UK’s underrated seaside resorts, there’s lots to get stuck into.

Plus, we’ve two motorhome reviews for you as we take an in-depth look at a pair of very different German ’vans.

Then Nick Harding enjoys a taste of the high life in the Niesmann + Bischoff Arto 79F. Priced from £88,782, an eye-watering £114,583 as tested, this sub-8m, 4500kg MTPLM slice of motorcaravanning luxury really is something very special – find out more from page 82.
