Yourstories picture AlAmy AlAmy The ecstasy of an outdoor breakfast I’ve been caravannIng ever since I was a kid, and our excursions often brought about an air of excitement on the days leading up to the long drive down to the south west of Scotland. Out of everything, I’d have to say my favourite thing was eating breakfast out on the decking with a beautiful view of the Loch Sween between trees and a white sand beach. Then we’d go fishing at night, hoping to catch pollock and mackerel, maybe even salmon and pike if the season was right. We could go on long walks down to the surrounding villages, or up the hills, or down to our secret beach, where we often pitched a tent and stayed the night. Best of all, when we got back we felt motivated, energetic, ecstatic even, looking forward to the next time. Casey Simmonds, Edinburgh Above: Loch Sween, Argyll and Bute Better than a hotel Many frIends ask me why my wife and I prefer a holiday in our caravan to flying off to a hotel on the Continent. Well, it depends on what you like to get out of a holiday. How many of these creature comforts can you take on a flight: your bicycle and golf clubs, your wine selection, the collection of favourite magazines you’ve still to read… and many more? You know what your accommodation will be like before you set off – and if the site isn’t up to expectations, you can move on.
