Away at last


After an abortive attempt to book in at the CCC site in Glencoe (fully booked the Site Manager said in an unfriendly manner). She was standing at the barrier when we arrived but waited until Lynne went into the office before telling us. A letter to the Club I think.

Anyway we are now at Invercoe and, with the motorcaravan facing down lovely Loch Leven, we have a wonderful view of Garbh Bheinn (photo). We were last on this site in 1991 when we left the caravan here and went off backpacking into Knoydart with our young Border Collie, Mist.. Another life.

What we'll do on this holiday will depend on how my knee holds up, but I won't bore you with the details.

  2. Funny people who run CCC sites. They are either very off hand and therefore rude or exceptionally helpful. Then you get the ones who spell out the health and safety of every aspect of the site when you only have a 6ft tent, stopping one night and just want to eat and sleep. Lauder for example.

  4. Alan R - good to hear from you. Only once have I found CCC wardens to be really helpful and friendly - ironically the last ones at Glencoe site. Here at Invercoe the owners are exceptionally helpful.

  5. The Castle site at Blair Atholl was exceptionally good in all aspects. Don’t know about the other sites we never got round to paying them a visit.
