    A bit of a jaunt

    Now back home safe & sound - was a great trip +/-1600 miles met lots of great people but a special mention to Jimmy - @Fleetwood Hilton who was an absolute star both in terms of route advice and saving my bacon with the repatriation of our jack pads to Reading Berkshire from Scotland. It...

    A bit of a jaunt

    We left Blackpool a day early as Boris seemed to suggest we should. Hampton Road don’t do refunds but they have given me a 1 night credit note to be used in the next 12months. We probably won’t use it so if anyone is thinking of coming here perhaps for the illuminations let me know & I can send...

    A bit of a jaunt

    Another day another pitch, this time we are at The Hampton Road Social Club (FY4 1JB) Blackpool. Looking on Google Earth you might think Hampton road is a bit narrow with parked cars but it’s fine plenty of space. As you approach Hampton road you will pass a number of signs indicating a 7.5t...

    A bit of a jaunt

    So this site is fairly muddy which fairly easy to deduce from the standing water & the muddy track edges and all the pitches are more or less a hard standing. Then along comes a motorhome & drives straight onto the soft grass, lo & behold his front wheel drive vehicle stops moving. Undeterred...

    We left Lomond Woods today heading South, on route we met up with our tour director - Jimmy- at one of the services on M74. Where we had a cuppa & were able to say “Thankyou” in person for all his advice on our journey around Scotland. We are now parked up in the Lake District at Waterside Farm...

    A bit of a jaunt

    It’s the last stop in Scotland -Lomond Woods Holiday Park (G83 8QP). Non contact reception, info received via a text, with a link to a downloadable map. We were given the option of various numbered, full service pitches 3-11, 24-28 & 33-47. It’s just a case of selecting a vacant one that suits...

    A bit of a jaunt

    The colours are terrific and add to that the views around every corner. We have all this on our own bit of land, and it’s taken us all these years to see some of it. We hope that Boris won’t scupper plans for the remaining bit of our jaunt. If anyone is coming up here I can thoroughly recommend...

    A bit of a jaunt

    Moved on today to Argyle caravan site (PA32 8XT) on the banks of Loch Fyne. It’s been a day of Loch’s & Glen’s travelling through the snow roads - no snow- with ever changing scenery that required several stops to take it all in. We also stopped at The Green Welly cafe Tyndrum which is a bit of...

    A bit of a jaunt

    Onward & across we have travelled to Ben Nevis Holiday Park at Fort William PH33 7NF, travelling across country with great views of mountains and Loch’s. Some of the roads require a bit of extra care as many of the bends are narrow & blind. We had Welsh sunshine most of the day with glimpses of...

    A bit of a jaunt

    Onwards & upwards we have travelled a bit further North to Huntley Castle Caravan Park -AB54 4UJ- just South of Keith. Good wide access to the site reception closed but you book in via your telephone. Loo’s & showers open, with a band system to reduce the amount of people in the block. ( you...

    A bit of a jaunt

    Today we have departed from the Ballater site, the pitch we were on (29) is approx 18m long & about 7/8m wide. They tell me that they are lengthening another, but nearly all of the pitches around where we were would accommodate most of us & all the pitches are hard standing too. They also found...

    Ignore this post

    Can anyone tell me what I should be ignoring as I’ve ignored the post ignoring the fact that I have not seen what I should be ignoring and so I’m at a loss of what I should be ignoring in the first place!

    A bit of a jaunt

    So whilst we are at Ballater I met my brother in law & he took us around the gaf where he works - the owners were not in but they have a good set of tarmac drives plus some great grass areas. I’ve asked him to see if they would mind having an RV meet on the grass - I think it should be ok as...

    A bit of a jaunt

    Now arrived in Ballater after a spectacular drive - travelling up & over Glenshee even in the rain. Yes in some places On the A93 it’s a bit adjacent with some of the artics coming the other way but but great non the less. Ballater community caravan site is very spacious with good facilities...
