Wild camping (MH) West Scotland

Anyone know of any good reliable places to park up the MH overnight and camp?
Looking around the A82 into Glencoe and somewhere round Tarbert.

Thanks

Pat

Europe. We're not out till we're out. Until then we're still in. Mind you out is looking a lot like in but with less benefits!!!

The road through Glencoe has a few places, as does the A82 along quite a lot of it, no particular place to recommend as we just pull up out of the way, so many to choose from.

Might be an idea to look on google earth.

Thanks. I'm doing a motorbike tour a few weeks beforehand so can check out locations.

Yep that is correct

The Clachaig Inn has special parking bays for motorhomes and they are very welcoming...just ask.

Great beer and food.

Try the middle link: although the LHS bar says "Clachaig Hotel", the map is to the shores of the Crinnan Canal!

There are loads of places especially going down the west coast, if it looks good fill your boots we have stopped overnight all over Scotland without any problems..


ray.

Just watching a shifty looking geezer in the library searching intently through the 'S' section of the dictionary, he's stopped now.

I think he's up to something. . .. . . ray......

That was my original plan but my wife is far less happy with a loose arrangement re overnight and cooking the evening meal. So I'm hoping to have some known good locations as targets with the option to stop if we pass somewhere nice on route. But nice to have a location to aim for rather than wander and hope.
