We stayed in the Glen Nevis Camping Park a fantastic campsite at the foot of Ben Nevis. This is camping on an industrial scale with a queuing system for check ins, shops & a pub on-site with even a fast food van for quick grub after a climb of Ben Nevis. The sites are huge & facilities are top notch   all at 16.00£ per night... highly recommended. The only drawback is the distance from town is about 2miles. But there is a pathway the whole way so it’s handy if you have a bike with you or if you just want to walk. We got a taxi in and out of town one night and it was about £7 each way. The Ben Nevis visitor centre is a ten minute walk & so is the trail up the mountain. A really nice spot to check out for food is the Ben Nevis inn at the foot of Ben Nevis. It’s a converted barn with wooden tables and some amazing photos of life around and at the top of Ben Nevis.

 

Day7-9- We drove to Mallaig where we took the quick ferry to Armadaleon the Isle of Skye. We then drove to Portree where we stayed in Torvaig Camping Park. Wow, be ready for a jaw dropping journey through Skye, the mountains here have jagged peaks & are more sinister looking than the highlands we had come from but beautiful as well. Torvaig Camping Park is another lovely small park with amazing views of the Cuillinn Hills. Many of the pitches are on a slope & they are on the small side but the location is great & you are only a mile outside Portree. We stayed here for 3 nights for £45. Portree is a nice little seaside town with a good feel to it… I would recommend the Pier Hotel bar for a drink & Café Arriba for amazing food. While in Skye we hiked to the Old Man of Storrwhich is a dramatic rocky outcrop (just bring good footwear for the first 10 minutes which is extremely mucky). We also visited the Dunvegan Castle & gardens which is steeped in amazing history and has beautiful gardens- recommended.

 

Day 10 – we took the SkyeBridge off the Isle of Skye & drove to Fort Augustus via the Great Glen, yet again another stunning journey. Fort Augustus is a small little village where the canal meets Lough Ness (no sigh of Nessy unfortunately). The Lock Inn serves great food &nice ale. We stayed in Cumberland’s Campsite which is a two minute walk from the village. It was a little steep at £23, and although the facilities are good I found the pitch layout a bit strange with all pitches in a circle around a huge grass area (although maybe the constant 2 days of rain had dampened my spirit at this stage)

 

Day 11- From Fort Augustus we passed back through Fort William &Glencoe to take the A82 to the Lough Lomond& Trossacks National Park. The journey on the A82 from Glencoe to Lough Lomond should be on any visitors must do for a trip to Scotland’s highlands… wow is all I can say, amazing stuff.

 

In the National Park we stopped & ate in The Drover Inn….. What a fun old inn this turned out to be. The building looks like something out of the Lord of the Rings & the interior is full of stuffed animals including a bear and a 2 headed lamb with other quirky bit & bobs. The food turned out to be lovely too. Seemingly it dates back to Rob Roy’s times, it definitely looked like it hadn’t been painted since then but it’s a really atmospheric spot. We saw a campsite up the road from it and I’m sure it would be a good place to base yourself for a night as they have live music and lots of custom here.

 

We stayed in Arrochar another small village nestled between Lough Lomond & Long. We camped up in Ardgartan Caravanning& Camping Club campsite. It’s a UK Caravanning Club Site which means it’s expensive£24, the site was also quite shabby but it does have a nice location on the shore of the Lough. Another drawback is the distance to the village a good 40 minute walk (20 minute cycle). We had a nice meal in the Village Inn in Arrochar.

 

Day 12 home- Our final day was spent driving back to Cairnryan to get our ferry back to Belfast & then Dublin.

 

Overall a great trip with some amazing hikes & beautiful Camping Parks. The only warning I would give is bring your wet gear as the weather can change very quickly.
