    Not near a pub John, but along the road that follows Loch Tummel (B8019) there is a spot by Queens View on the right of the road.

    You WILL be on your own at this time of the year even the Haggis hibernate up there. :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    thanks doug,

    must be a different Pitlochry......the one i,m looking for is in central scotland, slightly above and left of dundee.
    the place you suggested is in the western highlands....considerably further north west.

    thanks anyway.

    john.

    wild camp near a pub

    Hi John,

    I'm a Scots lass now living in Cornwall. Find a pub and ask the landlord if you can camp for night....a true Scot would never say no. Problem today is finding a Scot. Spent two weeks touring Highlands last year first Scottish voice I heard was the checkout lady in Morrisons' Fort William. Loads of places to "wind camp" in Scotland.....just be discreet.

    Pitlochry

    A good spot just a few miles past Pitlochry , driving from Perth ( south ) into pitlochry , drive through the town till you come out the other end and stay to the left heading for Tummel Valley ( Tummel Bridge ) on the B8019 ( postcode PH16 5SA ), you will come to Tummel Valley camping site ,, go past a few hundred yards , you will come to a junction , bridge on the left , you turn right about a hundred yards there is a spot you can park on just outside the camp , at least it was last year when I went up and hopefully still is , you can go to the pub on the site , meals served too , if you like in the wilds you have two other choices , 1 go over Tummel bridge and follow the road foe a few miles and you will come to a parking spot on your left beside an old kiln with great views , 2 it is well worthwhile heading for Braemar and camping in Glenshee , there are a few places to stop depending on the size of your van , if it is a big one like ours , go past the ski centre a few mile ( just outside Braemar ) and there is a big layby on your right , great for seeing the deer in early morning and after 7pm at night , hope this helps . ps , sorry its so long an answer .
