Title: Campsites
Post by: steve-o on April 14, 2011, 05:41:30 pm
Guys et al

Looks like I'm now walking the route the usual way...Panic is slowly starting to set in ...which is probably not a bad thing

Anyhow

I'll be camping. So do I need to prebook the campsites, at most it will be 2 of us with a man tent so we won't be taking up much space... Or can I simply arrive at the relevant campsites en-route.  We'll be using Travel-Lite which is going to be a life saver for me so we'll obviously need to decided which campsites we're using before we start out

Hi Steve-O, I know how you feel. Only 3 weeks now till we set off from Milngavie!! The only campsite we will be using is the one at Drumquassie, just before Drymen. Reviews aren't brilliant but I have reserved a 'wigwam' for our first night. There is ample space at Beinglas Farm, close to Inverarnan but we didn't see anything at Rowardennan or Tyndrum. There is a good sized pitch at Inveroran and also camping close to the bunkhouse in Kinlochleven. The only one I have used previously is Beinglas Farm and I was not too enamoured but that was for personal reasons and, if you have your own tent, should not constitute a problem. Hope this helps ;D
