    Nip into lidle and ask if you can overnight done it twice now no problems if you ask
    10 minutes to walk into fort william
    Follow signs to railway station and go past morrisons lidle store on right

    Just a thought don't try to overnight on council car parks I think you would br moved on

    The main car park at the south end of the town has no overnight signs but people just tend to ignore it as the police admit they turn a blind eye unless they get a call for a disturbance.
    We have used the car park several times. Usually at least 4 MHs parked up.

    Stornoway - not sure about the ferry terminal but tesco is just across the road, large car park, and plenty other places as well close by, shouldn't have any problem at all.
