Oban and Skye, Sep 2012 Kentucky Estro (from Coalburn, Lanarkshire)
Countries Visited: Scotland
Day 1 Friday 21.9.2012: Picked up the Kentucky Estro from Margaret in Coalburn (a small village about 30 miles south of Glasgow). Great handover, and vehicle was ideal for two of us. It had a fixed double bed at the rear over a very spacious garage space. Internally it was spacious with room for at least 4 people at the diningt table. The big fridge and freezer were excellent. Travelled to Oban and stayed on the Oban Caravan and Camping Park (£22 per night with hook-up). The camp is situated near the waters edge, about 2 miles outside Oban, overlooking the Island of Kerrera. Dinner was at Cuan Mor (http://www.cuanmor.co.uk/) the best restaurant in Oban, without exception.Day 2 Sat 22.9.12: Travelled north to Skye, about a 4 hour journey in a motorhome (with plenty of stops along the way). Headed to Glen Brittle Campsite, on the north side of the Cuillins. About 8 miles along a single track road, but when you get there it is worth it. Sitting just below the Cuillin, and facing a beautiful empty beach, it cost around £18 for the night with hook-up. Bring lots of food and drink, cos apart from the campsite shop (basic stuff only), there's not a Fish and Chip shop for around 20 miles. Sun sets to the west (obviously), just over a small hill, so not the best sunset photos, but interesting. A great place for outdoor types, with plenty of walks in the area, and the Cullin walks starting at the campsite.Day 3 Sunday 23.9.12: We were going to go to the campsite in the middle of the Cuillin, situated just off the main road, but instead headed to Elgol - one of the most amazing places on planet earth. The Cuillin are amazing and head straight down into the sea. Hell of a trip down to the harbour (make sure your brakes are 100%). Nowhere to wild camp here, except if you head out, on the small road beside the shop, towards the enclave of Glasnakillie. We found a spot (just off a passing place) with unbelievable views over to the Islands of Soay and Rhum. Perfect wild camping. We had a German couple about .5m away, in a better spot, but they had a 4x4 to get to the off road spot. In the middle of nowhere, with some of the best views on the planet. The sun goes down above Soay, and makes for some great sunset shots.
