I'm really enjoying camping at the moment, so I thought I'd share some of the hidden gems I found over the last couple of months.
Feel free to add on, always looking out for new places to go!
1. Loch Freuchie
Ideal if you plan to go wild camping.
The local farmers are really nice and they'll let you stay on their land as long as you don't disturb the sheep ( suffice to say they don't really like Welsh people)
Main attraction is the Killin falls, but there's loads of quaint little camp sides about as well.
If you follow the road towards Amulree, you'll end up in the hills where there's loads of places for wild camping as well
It's fairly close to Loch Tay, if you were into watersports ( the real kind, not the Seedler kind)
3. Shell Bay (Elie)
Shell bay is part of a larger bay called Largo Bay. It's near a village called Elie.
You can't really go wild camping here so you'll need to find yourself a wee campsite ( Shell Bay caravan park is brilliant!).
I think Shell Bay got its name from the mussle banks you find all over the bay. When the tide is low, the water pulls back about 1 mile and you can just go and pick mussles on the beach ( yummmmm).
There's also a walking trail called 'the chain trail'
It's very deserted. but absolutely gorgeous. Quite dangerous though, as some of the areas are only accessible when the tide is low
