    Wild camping spots in West Scotland



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    Hello
    I am new to this site so go easy on me if I ask the same questions you have heard lots of times. I have tried search terms but can't find the answers I am looking for so hopefully someone can help me out if possible. We are due to head to the West Coast of Scotland in around a fortnight for 8 nights. We live in North Wales so will stop off in Gretna on the way for the first night then on to Loch Lomond, Fort William, then back to Galloway to visit Girvan and Port Logan. We are looking for safe wild camping spots at the places we will be visiting - any suggestions would be most appreciated? Thanks in advance!

    We bought a 4.99 road atlas from a petrol station and used it to explore down small roads ending up at the sea with no or little habitation at the ends
    We found some fantastic unspoiled stops and searching out the gems was a heap of fun....

    Go explore and find your own memories....









    It's all part of the adventure....

    For your first stop, Metal Bridge Inn near Gretna is very welcoming to motorhome users. The Metal Bridge Inn In Carlisle

    I notice a conundrum in your request. Wildcamping spots are wildcamping spots. Just that. Someone may indicate it as safe but never rely on that. Safety means different things to different people. The only 'safe' wildcamping spots are the ones that when you arrive feel safe enough for you. It's a seat of the pants job. 🤔😊😊

    Another vote for Metal Bridge Inn for Gretna.

    And I have stopped at Girvan harbour a few times on the way to the Irish ferries.

    Overnight parking is acceptable and tolerated almost everywhere in Scotland. Just remember to be respectful of other people's property, leave the spot as you would like to find it and leave nothing but your wheel tracks.

    If by any remote chance you are asked to move then just accept gratefully. We have never been moved in 20 years of camping.

    Have fun.
