A night on a site

Yesterday we drove down to the mull of Galloway lighthouse, which had stunning views across the sea in all directions. We could even see the Isle of Man! It was a bit grey & misty though so didnt really take many photos....apart from the obligatory lighthouse photos.





On the way there we stopped at a wee village called Sandhead...they had open public toilets and a village shop. Perfect! Even though we have a toilet on board, we do try to use it as little as possible (less emptying needed)...so public toilets that are actually open and clean are a total bonus! The village shop was well stocked, so we topped up on supplies too. There was also a park up spot closer to the shore....a bit close to houses for us though.

On the way back from the lighthouse we stopped at port Logan briefly before heading on to our site for the night.

As this was our 4th night away, it was time to stay on a site for emptying & refilling.

At this time of year, there isnt much choice of sites as many of them close for winter. We were lucky enough to get a space at Castlecary holiday park  a lovely site with an on site pub and it's very own castle! It also had a duck pond, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and crazy golf, although these were closed for the winter.


Staying on a site is quite different to our usual off grid park up spots.  You can hook up to the electric...so no worrying about the leisure battery charge. We can use the electric heating/water heating, so saves our gas. I also get to use my electric straighteners instead of my gas ones. The downside is the lack of views...and always having to keep the dog on a lead.

Castlecary was a lovely park though, it would be ideal if you have kids, as there's plenty to keep them occupied.

The bathroom facilities were a bit dated, and not the best we've seen.

By far, the 2 sites that have the best facilities are Dornoch Firth Caravan Park and Machrihanish camp site both have superb facilities!

Now it's New Year's eve and we need to hit the road to find somewhere for tonight.....not sure where that will be yet!

Happy New Year to you all, when it comes......happy travels for 2019!
