    Hi all
    This is our very first motor home and will be our first holiday in one ( bit ambitious, you may think) :coffee: but we have previously camped and are pretty seasoned ...
    OH has suggested going over that way and as he is the driver , I will be navigating as well as scenery spotting on the wayo_O
    Any tips as to where to wild camp or sites to stay at would be appreciated. Thank you !:roflmto:

    Hi and a warm welcome from us. We've not been to Sutherland, although if it's as good as the Western Highlands where we were last year then you are in for a treat. Scotland is one of the few places in the UK where it’s legal to wild camp, meaning that there’s an unlimited number of remote and picturesque spots where you can overnight.

    There's a nice website here: -
    http://www.undiscoveredscotland.co.uk/areacait/
    which will give you lots of ideas on places to visit.
    And this one has lots of useful advice: -

    By the way, just noticed that you have posted 5 messages. That's your limit as an unsubscribed user. However, if you pay the £15 subscription fee this will open up lots more sections on the site. It's well worth it. The information and advice that we have received over the last 6 years has been worth far more than £15.

    Go on, it's only £15! Aside from that it'll be nice up there just now, midges should be away, and most of the tourists.
