Dornoch

Post by Dark Knight » Sun Apr 30, 2017 6:09 pm

Off to Dornoch (Scotland) tomorrow, rented a caravan at the local site for a few days, this will be used as a base to explore the north of Scotland.
Grateful that the weather has got a bit warmer.
Probably go up via Fort William and the great glen.

B roads on the east side of Loch Ness are much nicer than the A82, unless you have to Castle Urquhart.

Make sure you go to the beach..walk past the golf course club house..you may see dolphins from the beach.

Excellent choice, next week temps in north of Scotland will be in the mid teens. Off to Ullapool area myself for the week.

The caravan at Grannies park proved to be excellent, residential type, sleeps six, one double bedroom, one twin bedded room and a couch type bed, full size cooker and fridge freezer/ microwave and reasonable size shower all for £120 for four nights.
One caravan back from the beach.
ASda and self service petrol 15 Kms down the road at Tain.
We used it as a base to cut across country using the single track roads to Ullapool and Durness.
