We’re off to Bonny Scotland!

Yesterday we headed north leaving Dorset in the morning stopping off at Coventry for a lovely lunch and afternoon with Danny and Nicky, then spending last night at a very good Caravan Club affiliated campsite, Royal Vale, just off the M6 at Allostock, Knutsford.

Today we will be travelling to Carlisle for an overnight stop and to meet up with our friends and ‘travelling buddies’ for this trip, Jill & Kevin who are hiring a campervan and will be experiencing the campervan way of life for the first time!

After an overnight stop in Carlisle tonight, we will be heading for the Isle of Bute, Isle of Mull and Loch Lomond.

    Have a wonderful trip.
    Sorry we won’t be in Carlisle to see you off. We are back on 1st June, so if you are passing by after then call in.
    If you are going anywhere near the fishing villages on the east coast of Scotland ( very pretty), you must try hot smoked salmon, it is like nothing in the shops and the strawberries should be ready fairly soon.
    Bon journeé.

      Hi Nia, we are sticking to the west coast on this trip but will most probably be coming back again in the future as there is so much to see and we are only having 8 days this time. Unfortunately we will be back home before 1st June. Another time for sure! Provence looks lovely so will have to try that too! Enjoy the rest of your trip.

    Have a great trip. I learnt to swim in Loch Lomond. If you find some old woollen swimming pants please bring them back.

      I didn’t bring my snorkel and mask with me but if I see anything floating that could be them, I will be sure to hook them out for you!
