The Outer Hebrides
The islands of the Outer Hebrides are one of the most magical places on earth. A love affair with these Scottish Isles has developed for us at Red Kite Campers. Spending a week road tripping and exploring the rugged Western Isles will be unforgettable, I urge you to add these islands to your bucket list. Easily reach the Oban ferry port from our Glasgow base, the scenic trip up the west side of Loch Lomond and through Glencoe will not disappoint.
North Coast 500
The 516 mile North Coast 500 was recently named the most spectacular drive in the UK. Starting at Inverness Castle the route winds its way up the west coast through Dingwall to the Black Isle leading onto John o' Groats at the most northerly tip of the uk. Stop and sample the finest Scottish seafood, climb one of the munros or take a tour around one of the whisky distilleries close to the route. On returning to Inverness take a trip along the Moray Firth to watch the dolphins.
East Neuk of Fife
The word 'Neuk' is old Scots for corner. This area of Fife is famous for its pretty fishing villages. A walk along this part of the fife coastal route is a great way to explore them, only doing the Elie Chainwalk if the tide is out and you are up for a rough and ready scramble. Alternately pop to Elie pavilion to watch some tennis. A short boat trip from Anstruther harbour, The Isle of May is a magical mix of seabirds and seals. On return we can personally recommend the tasty fish and chips. Head to the home of golf at St Andrews, play your family at putting on the Himalyas or take a walk along the vast expanse of beach at West Sands.
