The weather wasn’t looking too bad so we decided to carry on with our original plan to go up to the Highlands and Skye. We set out from Edinburgh having filled the van up with the cheapest diesel we saw in our entire time away, 74.9p per litre at Sainsbury (as long as you’d spent more than 50 quid there).
As we set out on the road North the weather took a turn for the worse but we pushed on into the Highlands. Eventually the incessant rain got too much and we found a small campsite by the side of the road. I can’t remember the name of the village, but the site was okay. We had a hard-standing pitch and the ground all around was waterlogged, but we managed to get a reasonable night’s rest.
