Hi. New member here. We've read a number of posts on the forum, & whilst some do mention out of the way places, the trend seems to be car-parks/lay-by's. We've never "Wild Camped" before, and would probably enjoy it, to paying silly prices on overcrowded sites/CLs. But we weren't considering car parks etc as an attractive alternative.
Scotland used to be the bee's-knees for camping anywhere, but that has all changed, now that pop/movie stars? have bought up the land.
Sorry for the down-beat, but having found this site, we were hoping for some possitive guidance. We hope you guys can put us straight on the realities of wild camping, as we seemed to have had a romantic/rosy view of it. We are hoping to be proved wrong. :unsure:

Kind Regards

It is not often that we would stay in a lay by.Picnic sites are good places to aim for.In remote areas a small car park by the beach or in the woods is totally different to what a lot of people might think of as a car park.
Try it for yourselves,you'll be surprised.

Hi beejay I personaly dot think Motorway laybys are any good except when you are driving a long distance and you are really tired and even then only for an hour or so, better to use a truckstop. :)

I think this might be termed a slight exaggeration! Scotland is probably the easiest and friendliest part of the Uk. for wildcamping, Wales and Southern Ireland a close second and England well down the list..
