Dingwall Campsite

Dingwall Campsite

We had been camped here for eight nights – so we left our marks! A couple of days of sun and rain should fix it.

MX-5 packed

The MX-5 is not big enough for two to go camping, so we need some extra luggage room. The boot bag fits securely and adds 50l of extra space.

Dinner at Lauder Campsite – Scotland ‪@CampAndCaravan

Dinner at Lauder Campsite - Scotland ‪@CampAndCaravan

I have to be in Edinburgh tomorrow for Jeremy. Because of a project I am heading up for Octagon Technology, the original plan was to break the journey this evening in a hotel. However I managed to complete all my tasks by lunchtime, which meant it was a good excuse to get away from Lincoln early and spend a night at one of my favourite campsites.

Dinner was an upmarket, Japanese “pot noodle”, which was very good, tea and M&S, Lemon and Lime Jaffa Cakes.

Backpacking to Woodhall Spa

Saturday

Snail

Early in the day I had to share the path with a huge number and variety of snails.

Lunch

I found a quiet corner just off the path for a substantial lunch – in a cold wind and light drizzle. The poor weather did not continue, it brightened up by the time I reached Kirkstead Bridge.

Gone – Woodhall Spa Campsite

Sunday morning was sunny and bright. I had breakfast with fresh coffee by the lake. Packing away is easy when carrying all the gear, I do not have much with me so it does not take long to pack up.
