The quiet bit of Red Squirrel by the looks, theres one wee spot you can squeeze a camper in at the end of that track next to the river, brilliant! That looks like Invercaimbe by Arisaig, you w...

Re: Drive away awning or tent?

we have a khayam which is great but can be a bit of stress if its really windy. wifey prefers to have it pitched back from the van as she feels the sliding door is the best thing about the van and what separates us from the lesser mortals in coach built white motorhomes with tiny doors. When its too...

I was wearing black long sleeved top and when i looked down it had turned grey! every square inch was covered in midges going mental! I was even...

Re: Highlands & islands

We've just come back from doing a tour of the islands. We travelled up via Fort William to Arisaig for a night then took the ferry from Mallaig to Skye (with fuel prices what they are at the moment it works out cheaper going this way than via the bridge at Kyle of Lochalsh) Drove up through Skye spe...
