Have to be self sufficient but well worth the trip,reninds you of what you have been missing, been likened unto being in the Bahamas but not as warm.

very expensive, the amenities would explain why as there very nice until you realize that a 4 min shower costs £1?
camp 7
Keswick lake side camp


If anyone is interested I will be posting a full review on all the sites and lay buys but for now I would say that the A9 north to John o Groats and from there to the west coast is out standing, the west coast headed south isnít to impressive.:)
