Wild campsites in Scotland you shouldn’t miss!  May 21st, 2018

 

While motorhomes are just about great for wanderlust stricken soul, not every motorhome campsite offers you the luxury to get closer to wild and further away from the bustle of people. The campsites listed below are close to campgrounds where you can comfortably leave your vehicle and take a day, two or three to hike, bathe, climb and star gaze, all with the seclusion you crave.

 

Loch Enoch

 

Enjoy the striking view of Loch Enoch

 

Home to the “wildest guesthouse in Scotland,” Skiary, indicates that your camping experience at Loch Hourn comes with an undersupply of crowds and (if possible), an oversupply of misty hills, unpolluted visibility of the 14-mile loch sea and a wide-ranging selection of breathtaking views to drink in. The coastline is seldom reachable by road and has a sparse population, (the largest community, Arnisdale, contains a total of 30 residents!) living up to its title as “one of the last remaining wildernesses in Scotland”  making for fantastic hiking and camping conditions.

 

 

Sandwood Bay, Sutherland.

 

The “most beautiful beach in Britain” - Sandwood Bay

 

Formed when a massive cap of ice gurgled into the sea via the pass of Glencoe, The Lost Valley, Glencoe was formerly used by Clan Macdonald to hide livestock and a retreat during the Glencoe massacre in 1692. Though the hike there is a little strenuous, your first view of the valley will be gape worthy. You’ll get a magnificent view of the three sisters, Bidean, Gearr Aonach, and Beinn Fhad, waterfalls, lakes with crystal clear water and the perfect conditions for skiing in winter.  Though family-friendly, the terrain is steep, rock-strewn and involves the crossing of a river which may be difficult after heavy showers.
