We are a mid 50's Australian couple visiting the UK for the first time next May. As part of the trip, we are renting a campervan in Derby then heading up to Scotland for 8 days of exploring.
My mum was born in Falkirk and emigrated to Austrailia as a new bride in 1952, but sadly we have lost all contact with the family there - I haven't heard from them since I was a child.
So we will probably visit Falkirk (park the camper out of town and train in I suppose) just to get a feel for the place - and then head off!
Any ideas for a good iteinery? We are interested in beautiful lochs, mountains, wildlife, history, castles etc. The camper is compact - but equipped for wild camping which sounds like fun.
And what sort of weather might we expect in May? Chilly I guess? Maybe we'll even see rain! That would be a GREAT experience!
Any suggestions most appreciated.
