Touring the Western Isles – By Motorhome

Something I’ve been enjoying reading recently is the latest series of posts on the AvailablePitch.com blog. AvailablePitch.com is a website that allows you to search a wide range of campsites for available pitches – particularly useful if you are booking at short notice.

The owners of the site are apparently keen motorhomers and have been writing up the story of their recent island-hopping motorhome adventure around the beautiful Western Isles of Scotland.

I’ve listed the posts below in chronological order and will add new links as they are published – it’s well worth a read if you are thinking of a motorhome holiday in the area.
