|Bonny Scotland - the countryside just outside Sterling|
And our caravan, Rowan, was very beautiful...(I particularly like the ethereal ray of light slanting down through the first picture...)
But, let's be strictly truthful here, if I was an estate agent I would call Rowan bijoux. I, a diminutive 5 foot 4 (and a half) actually just about fit, lengthways, on the bed. D struggled and ended up having to adopt a sort of C shape which I don't think he found particularly comfortable. Another of the caravans, a fetching green one called Holly, is said to be larger.
Minor length issues aside, Bramble Bield was a lovely place to pass a couple of days. Although the site itself felt fairly isolated it was actually just a few miles outside Sterling. And the fact that adjoining us was a fully fitted kitchen and working shower meant that it was somewhat more civilised than the aforementioned camping experience. Oh, and talking of civilised, the owner brought a lovely Continental breakfast round for us each morning - cereal, fresh bread, pastries, fruit, yoghurt - far more than we could manage in one sitting. One minor gripe? No Yorkshire tea bags. We're going to have to start carrying our own around with us.
