Top of the Country and back 2018 “Glencoe”

After our night of wild camping we walked back to Disco Doris loaded up and set off for Glencoe area, travelling north on the A82 from Crianlarich the scenery is stunning every mile you go, your breath is taken away at every bend in the road as you get a new view Scotland is such a beautiful place.

Progress was slow we had to keep stopping to take pictures the idea was to get to Ben Nevis.

We turned off the A82 and headed for Kinlochmore on the B863 following the shoreline of Loch Leven ,when out the corner of my eye I saw some deer ,pulling the car into a layby ,camera in hand I climbed a wall and slowly headed  back, downwind through thick vegetation stalking the deer trying to get as close as I possibly could.

I was so made up our first real close encounter with some Scottish Deer, we continued along the B863 and arrived at Kinlochmore where we found a trial heading for the Grey Mares Waterfall, parking in the car in the community car park off we set.

We headed back to the car, stocked up at the local coop and then decided to drive to Ben Nevis following the opposite shoreline of Loch Leven.

Arriving at Fort William we searched and searched for a campsite but it was so busy, to busy if I’m honest, no wild camping signs or overnight parking signs plastered everywhere ,  I made a decision to leave and get as close to the isle of Skye as possible before nightfall so we could wild camp in peace.

Off we set and we found the perfect place, pulling into a lay-by well hidden from the road with a large grass area to pitch the tents and we also set up a camp loo, we slept well that night on the shores of Loch Garry.

Next time we head for the Isle of Skye and beyond….
