Scotland has a large number of campsites to choose from, with varying degrees of facilities, so there should be something for everyone. For more information, check out www.lovecamping.co.uk.
Before you head off, make sure your rucksack’s big enough (recommended 65–75 litres) to accommodate your tent, sleeping bag, cooking utensils and food, as well as changes of clothing. Choose a rucksack with good support straps that ensure it can be fitted to you comfortably. A waterproof rucksack cover comes in handy too. Always carry a small first aid kit, and remember if you drink water from streams, you should also pack some form of purification. A map is a must, but an Ordnance Survey is alwayspreferable. If you fancy a more DIY approach, campervans are readily available; better still, you don’t have to fork out a small fortune to hit the open road.
