When I 'wasted' my time at school, listening to Led Zepplin and Pink Floyd albums, I always used to dream about living in Scotland overlooking the sea, painting pictures, playing and recording music, fishing in my own bay, working on the land and not having to worry about money, and it's all here, O.K. except the money, so I don't worry about it...

Beach Camping




All this for only £5 a night... Even in March


I shouldn't really be showing this but if you want to camp in SW Scotland you need to know.
This is 'Newton Beach' near Gatehouse of Fleet in Dumfries and Galloway, if you want to camp the way it was done before showers, toilet blocks, swimming pools and laid on entertainment, then this is the best place to go in SW Scotland.
As you can see, here the tent is pitched on the beach (check the tide hight) and open fires are a must. If you like it quiet then go any month except for July and August, but even when it's busy it's fun. In the busy months the 'locals', mainly from NE England, have a huge communal fire on the beach at night and take all the kids out on their boats during the day fishing.
