Benefits of wildcamping in the North in November

No midges. Plenty of wildcamping sites - weather surprisingly good. Roads very quiet - very very quiet. And of course No midges.

The only real problem was dumping toilet waste. A lot of public toilets closed for the winter.

Stopped at :-

Nigg Bay

Kildonan ( a spot of gold panning - very cold)

Lybster

John O' Groats

Dunnet Head

Tongue

Durness

River Dionard

Loch Stack

Loch Merkland


Of course we were hardly home when the weather changed drastically.

Still it is well worth considering that time of year if only for the peace and quiet.

Thanks for your comment.

I think most of these spots are already documented in their respective areas.

We were at L Merkland for a night in October, disturbed only by rutting stags:D
Excellent pictures - thanks for sharing them
And to those who have never been - if you are really into the wild the North of Scotland is full of remote places:D

Beautiful - can you wonder why we go back year after year? Douneray was the odd one out though!

Hi!
Thank you for your kind comments. I use Olympus E-1 & E500 cameras and lenses. I'm just back from a fortnight up the Angus glens and Kinloch Rannoch area. Still very quiet up the glens. Not so quiet over Killin way - a lot of people on the campsites around that area.

Yeah that's about the time we're up there too, give or take a day or two.

We're not doing any islands this year so we'll be following the coast as far up as we've time for, then coming down through the middle bit or the east coast. We have'nt planned a route yet we're still thinking about it, if we find somewhere nice we may well stop for 2 - 3 days then move on.

regards,

Dave.
