    Just wanted to let you all know we finally got our first motorhome :BigGrin: which is: Knaus van ti 600mg (5 year old) a customer trade in from East Neuk Fifer :Smile: on a whole they have been Great very friendly open and welcoming making everything along the way a great experience, we got a few extras fitted but the main thing is a solar panel :thumb: We are on our second night away up here in St Andrews, hoping to do a night wild camping tomorrow somewhere around Fort William (just to jump in and experience it right away) we're planning on traveling around up here for a week to ten days :BigGrin:

    Have a great time, what a great location to try it out. Just done a long tour of Scotland and the west coast is fantastic.

    We've always preferred the scenery on the west coast, having lived in Largs for a few years. However, when we got our first mh, we took a trip up around the East Neuk of Fife, we based ourselves at Crail and stayed on the Sauchope Links site which we can recommend for great views out to the Firth of Forth and the Isle of May. We also stopped in at Elie, no problems parking there as the streets are very wide.:thumb: Crail harbour is absolutely gorgeous, as is Pittenweem, both well worth a visit, if you time it right, you can buy fresh fish and shellfish straight off the boats. We drove up to St Andrews for the day and before heading back down to Crail.
    Enjoy your trip whatever you do, we've yet to try wild-camping:BigGrin:

    Wild camping in the Glencoe valley amongst the mountains is a great experience.

    Those wildcamping around Scotland may be able to advise us. We have just been to Dalmally on a coach tour break (yes, I know, why when we have a motorhome?) So now we intend to go back with the van. We saw plenty of places that would be nice to stay but the question is what do you do about filling and emptying? We are used to aires on the continent but don 't have that facility here. How is it done?
