Caolasnacon Caravan & Camping Park, Argyle [Scotland]
What an amazing camp site this is!
The drive up leads around Loch Levern and some of the most dramatic scenery we’ve seen in a while.
The camp site looks like it used to be a working farm once upon a time and when we ring the bell a very efficient looking elderly lady books us in. We laugh about the old industrial fan near the office (errr, are they expecting a heat wave in Scotland? Hahahahahaha) and take the lady’s advice to stay *up wind* with a pinch of salt (old Scottish saying?).
Once we get down to business and select the PERFECT pitch still going on about *HOW* cheap this hook up was we discover that most of our neighbours have covered their faces with what? wait……tights??? And then……while taking *THE* most beautiful Instagrams of cooking by the lake while looking at the mountains the penny finally drops…………miggies!!!!! There’s billions of them! In our ears, eyes, mouths, the dogs, inside the van, crawling up our legs, necks, backs……torture!!!! We have a quick (but totally delish) barbie before calling it a day and setting up the van ready for early bed. Midgies are a total nightmare!
Caolasnacon Caravan & Camping Park in Kinlochleven sits in a totally dreamy location as part of Highland farm. There are a few statics on site [opposite the wash block and not visible from where we were] and the facilities are good [although painted in a strange colour but hey – who are we to criticize somebody else’s preference ^-^]. We paid £15 with EHU (dogs are free) and would go back in a shot! We’ve decided on a 5/5 despite the miggies as there’s not much one can improve on when it comes to nature……. If you’re ever lucky enough to stop off here make sure you bring miggie protection though and you’ll absolutely loooooooove it, I promise ^-^
