Where to stay in Scotland



HELLO EVERYONE!

So this is my last Scotland post and I am just going to give you all a quick run down of all the places that we stayed during our Scottish Road trip. 



 - THE TROSSACHS -


As we visited the Trossachs twice on our road trip, at the start and end, so we stayed in two different campsites. 

Loch Chon 
This campsite was the first and bigger of the two we stayed in. We stayed in pitch one and this was the most secluded. It is right on Loch Chon, in the middle of the woodland with beautiful mountain views. It is a very basic campsite but boy is it beautiful. The only facilities are toilets, so if you are the kind of person that can't go for a quick dip in a Loch for a bath then this kind of campsite probably isn't for you. This campsite is not too far in the car from Aberfoyle, there are a good few shops, fish and chips and pubs here!

Loch Lubnaig 
Loch Lubnaig was the last campsite we stayed in Scotland and was my favourite out of the two campsites we stayed at in the Trossachs. It is much smaller than Loch Chon and our pitch was literally on the Loch which was absolutely gorgeous. Each pitch comes with a picnic bench and a fire pit, which was great and the sight itself had toilets, a washing up station and a cafe, which serves the best breakfast and coffee! Again no showers here. The staff were also very lovely! This campsite is also not all too far in the car from Callander, a lovely little town!

- THE CAIRNGORMS -



We stayed in the Cairngorms for 4 nights in a lovely place called The Lazy Duck. The Lazy Duck is a complex, in Nethy Bridge, made up a camping, a hostel and three cabins. All beautifully put together and made with eco-friendliness at the heart of everything. We stayed in The Woodman's Hut. It was the coolest quirkiest place I have ever stayed, decked out beautifully inside and with a balcony overlooking the Cairngorm mountains. The Woodman's Hut is the most secluded, it is the furthest into the forrest complex that the Lazy Duck is situated on. A few quirks of the place involved a compost toilet, an outdoor rainwater shower, stream fridge, a hammock and a traditional highland box bed with a roof window to look at the stars (or birds)! It was the cosiest place I have stayed and could not recommend this place enough!

- ISLE OF SKYE -



After the Cairngorms we went onto the Isle of Skye and stayed at Glenbrittle Campsite, This site had showers... woo! It was a gorgeous location, right on the beach which we took full advantage of one evening and had a BBQ on the beach. The site also has a cafe, fresh pastries are delivered there daily!  One piece of advice would be, watch out for the potholes on the drive up to the campsite! From here Portree, one of the main towns on the island was about a 20 minute drive and also the Fairy Pools are really close, about a 12 minute drive!
