Have to say Scotland, not many off road opertunitys but thier is a few mountain tracks and passes, you can wild camp, as laong as you leave no mess, if possible ask first.
Some great mountains and glens, we have been to a lot of places in Europe, but Scotland is on par with most of them.

Whiskey trail, castle trails, and wildlife.

Spent 2 weeks in the Highlands last year for the first time - flippin fantastic! As you say, almost no off road up there but still worth it. Found a great "road" up there - much of it broken up,over rocks, through a waterfall,scary drops....22 miles to NOWHERE - there was barely enough room at the end to turn my TERIOS around without dropping into the sea. We (well, I) Laughing thoroughly enjoyed it

"Commuting options".....YOUR CAR!!!!! Laughing

Loch Ness well worth the visit, but that is not the only one worth seeing, there are plenty of others. I would say a week is barely enough, you MUST make time to go right up to the top coastal area - it's fantastic and there are some incredible roads up there too.

I have seen a LOT of the world over the years but that was the first time I have been to Scotland with time to stop and enjoy it. I have to say, it has some absolutley stunning views and beautiful places to visit. Can't wait to get up there again. We drive the whole trip because my wife will NOT fly and since my very lucky escape from the Clapham train crash I really don't like trains...so we drive....brilliant!

In Scotland, The higlands are incomparable! The mountain view of northwest highland is magnificient:) You can visit Edinburg and revel in the Georgian architecture of Edinburg castle. The head of to Stirling castle, Callandar for cycling, and then check the beautiful green forests of Trossachs.

Applecross and Achiltibuie are great spots for camping and you could trail towards the west cost of Scotland and the highlands:)

Most of the whisky trails are in Mory and Aberdeenshire, in the North East.

Some great pictures there.
I did a bit of touring in the far north west, all along the coast last year, from Cape Wrath down to Fort William.
Fantastic scenery but the further north you go the Scots seem rarer and rarer most people we met around Durness and Sandwood all seemed to come from Berkshire Very Happy

Hi, i'm new here...so hello everyone.
We are planing a travel to Scotland next summer and we would like to visit the most important place, but we have some doubts about the accommodation. We plan on camping, including free camping, any help?
Thank you very much in advance

I would recommend you get a copy of Cool Camping Scotland, give details of lots of nice camp sites. My favourite site is at Loch Morlich, you will find details on the web.

If you are near Alford and I am about you are welcome to pitch up for a few nights. pm me if you are interested.

 cheers1
