    Quick question:

    We are looking for a convenient spot to buy our groceries (and beer/wine) before we head through the Highlands for a week in our rented Motorhome.

    My daughters and I will be spending the day shopping in Glasgow while my husband and son pick up the motorhome from Manchester; the plan is to take the bus/train to meet him somewhere around 4-5 pm, shop, then head to Loch Lomond for the first night.

    Does anyone have any suggestions? I suppose I am looking for a large Tescos/Sainsburys in the west part of Glasgow, close to the motorway heading to Loch Lomond.


    Thanks,
    Kathleen

    P.S. Please don't ask why we had to rent from Manchester if we are touring the highlands - it is a long story :)

    Hi, big Tesco at Silverburn on the M77 about 5 miles south of the city centre or a shopping centre at Braehead on the mate on the way to the Erskine bridge and Loch Lomond. Cannot remember what store it is, sorry.

    I also had an online shop delivered to a campsite last week.

    Seemed cheaper and easier than either going via bus or moving motorhome out and back again.

    Have brilliant time - but be careful and secure - we spent couple of weeks up there and had my bike nicked from a secure carpark (packed up to leave early morning and not allowed to keep car we had towed up next to RV):Eeek:

    Apart from that we loved it - have family up there too so off in Sept to see them :thumb:

    Scotland is amazing - so much diverse countryside - love it:thumb::thumb:

    Enjoy x

    Hiya, I may be too late to post this, you could have been and gone!
    There is a Co-op in Balloch, it's not massive but it has everything you need. It's easy to get a train from Glasgow Queen St to Balloch and your Husband could meet you there. ASDA will deliver here too, have you booked a site?
