I'm at the planning stage of a kaper to the beautiful West Coast of Scotland.  This will be in the first 2 weeks of April.

It will definitely involve a stay at Loch Lomond.  The duration and other destinations will be determined by who wishes to come along and for how long.

If you'd like to be know more and potentially join this trip, please reply below. Basketball

We're probably available from Sat 8th April but is does depend heavily on some other some going on.

Please keep us in the loop.

Scotland in April? Not one for us I'm afraid particularly with water involved.

Sounds like a great trip for those aquatically inclined though.

Would mixing the water with a nice single malt make it more attractive Martin?

We're hoping to do the North Coast 500 later in the Spring so we'll pass thanks.

Oh, I'd never mix water with a Bruichladdich. It'd spoil both drinks!

Easter starts on the 8th for us too. I'm not sure a week is long enough for Scotland but I'll keep in the loop.

Too early in the year for the Scooby two, but either way we are unlikely to have enough holiday next year for this trip (doo agree that a week would be too short)

Given time constraints I'm seeing this as a 2 stop trip, so not expecting it to be a grand tour, more of a taster. I'm thinking a few days at Loch Lomond and then moving west to somewhere like Oban.

For those of us travelling from the South, it will also involve a stop somewhere along the way - Keswick perhaps.

We are always keen to go to Scotland! - although April weather is very unpredictable - When we lived there we have had scorching sunshine but also snow at that time of year (not at the same time!)
The west coast has about three times the rainfall than the east coast I am told!
The camp site just north of Oban overlooks the sea with Mull out west - I think it is a caravan Club site but may not be exclusive. It is a sloping site and wheel ramps are needed - at least on the pitch we chose!
We have stopped at the T-Bay caravan site on journeys north - it is on the M6 half way up the Lakes and very convenient if just needing an overnight stop.

I would like to come - no doubt May weather less risky than April but sometimes can get lucky and its great!

Im a big fan of Mull, if going to Oban - an hour on ferry only costs around £40 return for the Kombi. Its got whale watching, sea eagles, Staffa and Fingals cave and Iona - great campsite in fionnport. And amazing seafood.

Other option I always recommend is to go island hopping - ferry from oban to barra (calmat hopscotch ticket), then up through Uists to Harris and Lewis, back through Skye to Ullapool on mainland - takes about a week for that trip.

Having been through the deluge, and still enjoyed, what was the Northern Meet this year, I'm really not bothered about what the weather brings. It's more about the spirit of adventure and visiting somewhere new. As I've been told countless times by locals up there, 'we dress for the weather!' Very Happy
