    We are heading for Scotland next week with little idea of where to go. Having been used to Aires in France not really sure how to plan. Do we really have to book from one campsite to the next? Maybe there are good wilding spots that you could PM me with. Also useful locations for filling/emptying (I like the French term 'vidange' - it sums it up succinctly)

    How long are you going to be here for? And what do you like to see?

    East coast or west? North or South of the central belt? There is a lot to Scotland!

    I understand the West coast has more to offer than the East. We like scenery and 'gentle' walks. No real hard and fast ideas, hence the request for suggestions.

    Personally I have always preferred the west coast to the east coast. However, we spent a week in and around the East Neuk of Fife last year and it was beautiful.......the weather was great as well:thumb:

    Over the Forth Road Bridge and head for the Fife coast and the little fishing villages like St. Monans, Elie, (the main street here is really wide and great for stopping with the motorhome), Crail, Pittemweem and Anstruther for the "award-winning" fish and chips:thumb: You can take a boat trip from Anstruther out to the Isle of May (bird sanctuary). If you decide to go to Fife then go to St. Andrews as well, plenty parking in the west car park close to the beach.

    We spent a week at Sauchope Links site, in Crail, it's right on the sea front and a pleasant walk from there along the coast and into Crail. The Crail harbour gallery and tea room is a nice place for lunch or just a coffee, there are some tables outside with a sea view as well.

    Edinburgh is wonderful too, we're off up there next week, a stop over in or around there is ideal if you were intending to go up the east coast too.

    We lived in Largs on the west coast for a few years, so I'm a bit biased about the scenery on the west being better than the east.

    But there are so many beautiful places in Scotland, you'll be spoilt for choice........the Borders are beautiful too, and not forgetting Loch Lomond and further north from there. I almost forgot to mention, Dumfries and Galloway region is lovely and quiet, we're 2 miles from Gatehouse of Fleet and there are many lovely, easy walks around us.

    Can't help with wild-camping spots, we've never tried it yet and always stick to sites. Good luck and happy travels:thumb:

    That's what I find problematical. We are so used to spending weeks on end just going from place to place, looking for the nearest Aire and stopping off for a day or so then moving on. I'm struggling with the idea of having to book a site, decide how long we would stay then having another site booked for the next stage and so on. It's the lack of flexibilty and sponteneity that constrains motorhoming in Britain. I suppose we've just been spoilt by the facilities on the continent. :Sad:


    We don't even know where we want to get to let alone booking up a series of campsites as destinations.
