    Hello everyone.

    We are Finn and Britt from Norway, new to this Forum and pretty new to MH.
    We have been doing Scandinavia and many countries in Europe in several caravans, but changed to MH in 2013.

    We really like to explore and hopefully we are planning a trip to GB in Autumn 2015 or spring/summer og 2016.
    I am sure there will be plenty of good tips on this Forum! :):):)

    Kind Regards
    Finn ad Britt

    I wonder what you want to see ? We dream of Scandinavia and the scenery you have but are frightened by prices.

    Here we don't have anything like your scenery but we do have plenty of old relics, our main storeroom of these relics is called Buckingham Palace plus overflow stores at Windsor, Balmoral and Sandringham.

    So tell us what you want to see and we'll certainly confuse you. We confuse like no other forum known to man.

    Welcome to the fun from Sunny Devon, maybe you can bring your trip forward to August and come visit us at the Ilfracombe Rally.

    Thank you guys for kind regards!

    I'm sure you will enjoy Scandinavia for its scenary and (mostly) kind People. But the prices are a bit stiff regarding to what you are used to in GB.

    We have been travelling in England, Ireland and Wales in both rented cars and our own private cars - using B&B or hotels.
    But since we now are retired we would like to og by MH, and very much the whole way up to Scotland.
    But, we would certainly try to visit any Rally that might correspond with our plans - and the Ilfracombe Rally looks great! ;)

    Sorry for the bad spelling - I'm not so used to English Language....

    Take the ferry to Newcastle and turn right, best scenery in the UK. Up through Northumberland, on to Scotland and Edinburgh then head west and up the west coast of Scotland. You will not be disappointed.

    Welcome!

    There is nothing to stop you, I live near Manchester so I don't consider Scotland far, the longest you can drive is only 900 miles top to bottom.

    All I can think of to say is we do not have the number of camping sites to cope with the demand during the main school summer holidays so you may have to be flexible where to go and be prepared for a Plan B. And do not travel on our Bank Holidays when we Brits love to spend 10 hours in a traffic jam to sit for 3 hours on a crowded beach.

    hi and welcome from Bonnie Scotland, we visited your beautiful country last summer and fell in love with it which I'm sure you'll do the same with mine.
    Feel free to ask anything you will get loads of help on here.
