Anoch Moir has a car park for hill walkers etc. There is no, No overnight parking signs, it's quiet and a great walk for the dogs. No cell reception which is either good or bad depending on how your feeling.

A861 just after Strontian. There is a lay by where Truckers working on the main road leave their vehicles overnight. It is large and has a great hill walk at the back of it but is pretty steep so make sure you have the right gear on.

North Connel just before the Oban bridge. Found this after some stupid lorry driver tried to cross the 13ft high bridge with a 15ft truck. All traffic was stopped supposedly for at least 24hrs. Turned into North Connel and a lovely lady told us about a track just down by the "airport" where every one seems to camp etc overnight with no problems. She even filled up our water barrel.

Seil Artists shop and grounds. Now this cost us 10 but the sight was secure overnight they let us use their facilities and it sits right at the bottom of a sheer rock face, which was pretty terrifying during the thunder storm we had but that's probably cause I'm a woose and woke up to lightening hitting the rock face. To be fair my dog was scared too.

Thanks for these suggestions, but I am struggling to locate where they are in order to add them to the POIs ...

I can't find Anoch Moir at all

A861 just after Strontian - to the west or east of Strontian?

And the track by the airport - more precise directions please.

Ideally, could you locate these using Google Maps and give me the latitude/longitude, or a link?

Thanks

Chris
