    West Coast wild camping

    How far North are you going? Big car park on A82 at Loch Tulloch, several on the coast road between Oban & Ballachulish. If you are going skiing there is plent of space at the Glenco ski area and they are happy for you to stay there overnight.

    Further North there are plenty of places to pull off on the Ft Wiliam to Kyle road, especially along Loch Cluanie, On up the coast it's a few years since we've been that way but I remember a huge parking area on the road just S of Loch Broom, looking N over the sea, after that there was not a problem.

    Hi

    Where on the west coast are you planning on visiting i might be able to help. If your sensible i cant see any problem we wild camp all the time try not to park somewhere that you think might annoy someone or in front of a farm gate as farmers start early.

    We have park in forest mainly in the dumfries and galloway area and L Lomond.

    We have also used layby where the road has been renewed and old road becomes a layby and we have never been moved on also if stopping for a bar supper ask the owner if you can stay overnoght in carpark so you can have a few beers.

    Hope this helps
    Gerry
