    Well after a wee walk round Inverness town this morning we headed to Nairn via Fort George, when we arrived we planned on staying at the harbour for the night. As always I thought I'll double check its ok so went along to the harbour masters office, ask the guy in there and he said no problem but you might prefer the wee car park over the bridge as the boy racers come down here at night. He also thanked me for asking as most just turn up and park although as he said technically their not allowed.
    So off we went although just across the bridge we had to drive about 1/2 mile as no Vehicles on bridge, anyway once round the other side we noticed a parkdean site so thought I'd pop in and ask how much. The receptionist couldn't find the price list so asked if £10 sounded ok and that included passes to swimming and sauna for us both, so our wildcamping night has turned into a nice site and facilities.
    Just been out for a lovely Indian and a few beers to celebrate being a year older, what a lovely wee town.

    If you are going that way I can't recommend Port Erroll at Cruden Bay enough. It will be a wet and wild at this time of year but parking on the harbour wall overlooking the beach is a blast. Literally if the wind is in the right direction!

    You definately won on the price for that site. The price we were quoted in late summer was rediculuous.
