Another lot of very nice pictures. It looks like your having better weather than we are. I am interested in the pictures as Scotland is a place we have never been. June keeps on about going there so the more pictures the better.
Here are some of mine from my Edinburgh jaunt.....

Today has been what I'd call our first real motorhome day - the day when we took advantage of the vehicle in the way that makes the most sense.
In Edinburgh, we used it in the same way that we'd use the caravan - left on site, and using the bus system to get into around the town.
Leaving Mortonhall, Edinburgh, we drove to Portobello, then Joppa, where Dot lived when she was a teenager. Her house was right on the seafront, no 11, and we stood outside it. Then we drove along the Coast trail, down to North Berwick, and on to Dunbar, and again southwards. We found a layby high above the North Sea, where we stopped for lunch (fishfingers, yum). Got a bit blown about by trucks.
After that we passed through Berwick on our way to the Northumberland coast trail - passing Bamburgh Castle, the Farne Island and other places of . . . we took about 7 hours to cover 80 miles, point to point, and I guess that this journey, in the way we did it, wouldn't have been possible towing the caravan.
Tomorrow, we'll be going to Barnard Castle, so we'll be able to have a look at some more of the coast before going through Newcastle on our way south . . . On Sunday, it's down to Scarborough for our final night in the Escape 664, which we take back to Hull on Monday - how sad!
Odd day today - had the mixed weather we were promised earlier in the week. Had an entertaining hour with a lady called Claire at the Boulmer Volunteer Rescue Service, then went through the heart of Newcastle into a downpour . . .
Our last whole day - drive from Barnard Castle to Scarborough, via Sutton Bank, 25% incline . . . could have done it in third, but did it in 2nd for the second half, so as not to get too far in front of the cars behind me!
hi , i took early retirement at the begining of the year, we got our 1st van in early june and have already had some great times, looking forward to a full years use next year. the main reason for getting a caravan was to make the most of our time now, and our money!!, we know all about baby sitting for grandkids but youngest starts school after xmas so we should have more time on our hands. pete and maggie
