Had to google them but they will be on our bucket list when we've found a MH
I did a motorcycle tour of Scotland a few years ago in June and it was like mid-winter so we plan to do the same route and more of Scotland on four wheels and see the Great Glen and all the sights in relative comfort...
Yes, we went last winter. It really is just a carpark but you are welcomed and we slept very well. There’s a park opposite if you want to sit out/bbq etc.
There’s a nice walk down the canal to the Kelpies .... make sure it’s dark when you’re there as they’re stunning lit up.
A tick on my bucket list.
The Kelpies are relatively close to me and we go there several times a year. They really are beautiful to see but I read on a forum today that they were plagued by the boy racers last night. Not racing but just being loud and disorderly. Just and hope for the best. At worst they should be gone by midnight.
Ok, so we went and ..........................WOW!
Absolutely fantastic. Well worth the drive over from Ayr. Wonderful sculpturing of the metal cladding that was so well done it made them look soft and made you want to stroke them..............IF you could reach!
Only disappointment was finding that they are Sooooooooo close to the motorway. We had visions of walking up on a quiet serene night and watching them change colour but I'm afraid with so much racket coming from the motorway we decided to just view them in daylight and move on.
There were about 8 or 9 motorhomes in the carpark (£5 for the night) so nighttime noise wont bother everyone but for us it's a big deal.
Moved on to a wildcamping spot on a quiet lane in the hills overlooking Stirling castle and had a peaceful night there before the drive back to Ayr.
