I got back after my trip oop North - did it alone in my MX-5, camping in sites mostly booking on the way, starting at a campsite near Inverness, taking in Thurso, Sango Sands and 3 nights at ‘The Wee Campsite’ on the banks of Lochcarron - last night at Glen Nevis before heading home.
The car was an absolute blast and perfect for the route - on the road out of Applecross leading onto the Bealach an Ba pass an F360 let me past as his rear end was hitting the bumps too much and he had to slow down! So even better than a supercar! Most other people were happy to pull in to let me pass on the single track roads and I had many happy miles getting my foot down and making the most of it.
There was definitely an element of Tetris getting my gear in the car, but mainly due to me taking too much stuff (covering all contingencies, including a collapsing bucket and trowel in case I couldn’t get to a campsite for the night and needed to poop)
I got really lucky with the weather - although the first two days were a bit claggy, for the remainder it was perfect. No midges either.
I can definitely recommend it to anyone on the fence.
