Theres some great wild camping locations on Mull Polly. we recommend you try Loch Na Keal, south side, we woke up on the Lochside watching seals and an otter in the sea / rocks. you might see Sea Eagles over there too . Calgary Bay beautiful  over night. One campsite  not to miss - Fidden Fields, from where you can go over to Iona

Something like that

Well well well
After a few months looking at where I was going in Scotland and planning.
I set off on my travels. I had booked a couple of Campsites on Mull and my ferry.
I stayed over at Kendal Cricket Club which I was happy with.
Then I stayed at the Green Frog Mofffat which was ok
Then to Luss
And this is when it started to rain 
My first pitch had a lovely view of the Loch but during the night the overhanging trees were dropping bits and pieces on my roof so kept setting Izzy of barking. Not a good night.
Went to ask if I could move which they sorted for me. Amazing I was in daylight. Still could see the Loch.
I stayed here for 3nights and on the last night ,early morning the winds were awful. Just like the one in Orkney where I got dressed and sat on the bed all night. Well nearly as bad.
So on getting up and knowing that the following week the gales were supposedly coming, I decided to come home 
It was either go for the ferry or home, so home I decided to go.
The motorway was lovely and quite and it was daylight and bright in places hardly any rain.
Stopped at Moffat for my lunch and decided to head for Kendal.
So off I goes and near Penrith the engine didn't seem to be working very well, I was losing power. Power surgers.
So luckily I got to an exit that shows a photo of a truck stop. I ended up on the industrial estate , glad I got off the motorway. Oh by now black smoke as well
Breakdown came in the form of a left hand drive Dodge and trailer.
So I was transported home , where we arrived 2hours later.
Think I lost my mph as well when I was at Luss.
Desiel chap coming out today to have a look.
All motorhome stuff washed yesterday and dried
Hope I get my mph back
And I kept thinking how would I have got on if I had gone for the ferry
Don't think this Adventure was meant to be.

Nice pictures Polly.
Shame about the mishaps and the weather...

We have just returned from a couple of weeks in 'Sweepea', camping on the N.W coast of Scotland nr. Arisaig. We too had awful weather.
The first four days were fine and we managed to get some canoeing and biking done, but after that it was howling wind and rain most of the time - day and night!

Great for pictures to be had, but not so good for 'Cabin Fever'

Stay safe lady.....

Had the mechanic out the other day and he thinks it's the hose. Thinks the turbo is ok
It's going in tomorrow to have a proper look
Suppose I'd better get to the bank

They recovered you for a split turbo hose!! I'd be changing breakdown policy, they could fix that at the roadside in 15 minutes. I know in this case the weather was bad and you wanted to come home, but it could have been different and you might have wanted to carry on

They never looked.
Asked me what was wrong.
I explained what was happening 
And that was that

When I first got the van say 2 years later I had to call out the breakdown with the same symptoms. He came told me it was the hose and did it there and then.
No cost

Now let's see how much it's going to cost me now

Well the hose will be about £20 if it needs one, they usually just come off and need putting back on with a new hose clip, how old is it?10 year old? it's probably a perished hose. What breakdown policy do you have?

Well I have my motorhome back

I was really worried.
The mechanic when came out just said something about older vans. Can't remember what he said but I was taken back by older.
Anyway took her in today 
Went to pick her up , it was a pipe cost me a tenner but I did give him a tip as I was so so relieved. Said to him thought I was going to have to cancel Christmas and take a overdraft out.
Then the icing on the cake. He said it's a lovely van and runs really well 

I was well chuffed 
Now have to go to bank tomorrow and put my money back in before I spend it on something daft

So the pipe had just come off then, I'd contact the breakdown service and ask why it wasn't repaired on the road, you lost money at campsites and ferry, a months planning and holiday lost. Might be good news getting a £10 bill but I'd be mad as hell if I got recovered home for that Evil or Very Mad
