    You said 11 days, but not where you are starting from.

    Progress can be slow on the beautiful roads, with passing places, so do not try to go too far - there are many beautiful places in a short distance.

    I am a fan of the West Coast also - Applecross, Sheildaig, Red Point etc.

    Get out of the motorhome - breath the air, walk the hills and beaches.

    This information is coming from an Englishman in Poland, but we both want to go back to Scotland in the motorhome.

    Enjoy it - if you do not, give up wildcamp motorhoming.

    Thank you everyone for your responses! We are starting in Edinburgh, we will have 2 full days there prior to picking up our campervan (not a full motorhome) Our plan is 3 days in the Applecross/Torridon area 3.5 days on Skye and 3.5 days either on Isle of Mull or Fort William/Glencoe area. Mostly wild camping but a few campgrounds for days we think we may need a shower haha. I am thinking we may be trying to fit too much in to this short trip but I just can't decide what to cut! Any advice on itinerary?

    East coast is sweet as well

    Spent 3 night on the east coast around Moray Firth recently lovely place, no problem wilding parked up late left early. Looking for whales but think they were on holiday.
    Enjoy..... make sure you have some dumpling cake (fried Christmas cake put it on your breakfast) and don't buy the the 1kg ish chub's of black pudding they sell in Morrisons, never before in my life have i seen black pudding of that size being sold. Now two stone heavier.

    hello

    I was recently up in Scotland, only touched on the lower parts of the highlands myself, although Phil went on to do more of the highlands and a few of the islands off the west coast. It's really beautiful. I would say my favorite view was Loch Locky. it was stunning.

    welcome along.
