    Sea and Loch views anywhere on west coast take your pick.

    Enjoy yourselves but be warned once it gets hold of you it don't let go.!!!!

    Hope the weather is ok July so far has been wet i see you are based at loch ness for a week, are you based there and touring and returning to the site my opinion would be to make most of your time on the west coast it will blow your breath away i will be up that way for 2 weeks in mid Aug 2 days max on any one location as there is so much to take in enjoy your time in Gods Country

    we are also leaving on Sat for three weeks touring the west coast .. lets hope the weather improves.. :RollEyes:

    Skye first, then will meander up the coast as we feel the urge ...look out for a green Cabanon tent, a Honda CR-V with a Jack Russel in tow ...

    just remembered, .. a friend of ours called and said it was 90deg in Glasgow :Wink:

    If near Inverness don't forget Brin Herb Nursary just South of Inverness. Margaret & Angus will welcome you and you can use their field for free, as we did last weekend.

    Now near Fraserburgh sitting in the glorious sunshine. :sin:

    Nowhere better than Scotland when the sun shines. :thumb:

    No wee beasties here . :Cool:

    update we are here

    long drive thursday evening and pulled up 1am in a quiet lay by just off motorway which turned out to be a intergalactic motorway as 100mph lorries rocked us to sleep , carried on and fantastic views , small glitch on black rock mountain as van would not start , ahh well extra 2 hours as rac arranged garage to attend , loose wire on fuel solonoid all fixed , many thanks to rac and local garage, stopped at fort wililam for lunch which has motorhome car park for £1.50 all day , spent last night on side on lock lockey below loch ness and what a superb view of loch and mountains, heading up to loch ness today for a weeks stay, weather yesterday great and dry so far today, fingers and toes crossed it stays that way
    many thanks for all the advice and offers :thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb:
