On top of the world....or maybe Scotland

I can't believe its been a month since I last wrote a blog post! I guess its been a busy month!

We did have one cheeky night away at the end of march...we went to a favourite spot of ours at Portsoy.

This spot is quite a small one, its right down by the sea and next to an old outdoor swimming pool that was used by locals right up until the 1980s! Its such a lovely spot and only a short walk along the clifftop path to get back to the main village, where you will find a quaint harbour and a very popular ice cream shop!

There are no services in this spot, but you do get tv reception and limited 4g signal. Its a popular spot for locals to come fishing so a few people come and go, but perfect for an overnight.

Also at the end of march we had to get the dreaded annual habitation check on our motorhome. We drove back to our dealer in Perth, The Motorhome Company, where we received not only the usual excellent customer service, but were delighted to also have a clean bill of health for the van! Bring on the next year of adventures!

Over the last 12 months we have driven 7095 miles, we have enjoyed 42 nights away.....had 39 ‘wild camps' and 3 nights on a campsite. What an amazing first year and we love our van even more now than when we chose it!

So onto our next adventure..... we are currently parked up in a stunning spot 5 miles south of Applecross and looking out towards Breakish on the Isle of Skye. We are staying at Toscaig Pier. There used to be a ferry that sailed between here and Kyle of Lochalsh up until 1978. This was the only way that you could get to Applecross when the hair raising Bealach na Ba road was closed!

Our spot tonight is quiet and secluded, just how we like it! We even have 4g tv though so it will have to be cards or scrabble....not that Saturday night tv has anything to offer anyway!

On our way here today, we stopped at the Bealach na Ba viewpoint and decided to walk up to the top of the hill above the car park. The walk was a challenge for me and my unfit body, but it was so worth the effort when we got to the top and saw the amazing views. Simply stunning and we felt like we were on top of the world.....or maybe scotland ❤
