Default Scotland recommendations?

Hi all,

I'm intending to spend a long weekend camping in Scotland early September.
Looking for somewhere to get away from it all for some peace and quiet -
though not in the middle of nowhere (unless there's a good pub nearby!).
Would like to walk, cycle, do a bit of photography, some wildlife watching,
etc. Would like a small camping site, possibly attached or near a pub for
good food and beer.

Area wise, looking for north of Glasgow, Trossachs NP, towards the west
coast, as far north as Fort William or thereabouts.

Any recommendations or web sites I should be looking at?
Thanks in advance.
Nick

This place i can reccommend. Chap, good clean facilities,
on high ground [excellent views] at the confluence
of two 'Glens', a ten minute walk to a pub/post office,
good walks and cycle ways, the cheapest water sports in
UK at Loch Oik just 5 mins drive away, BBQ pits provided
loadsa wildlife at night [Ask the proprietor - nice guy]
Free fishing on the Loch Side [Oich] Garage 10 mins walk
shop 20 mins walk/5 mins car.

WARNING: the time you are talking about is midge season
and the last two hours of the day will see you noshed. I
advise you to take SSS [Skin So Soft] from Avon - moisturiser,
which is very effective in acting as a repellant.


Or the neighbouring site

All the pitches are cut into a rough hillside and have their own picnic
table. There's a nice riverside walk to the pub in the village.

Does that Skin so Soft from Avon really work?

I prefer this one. If you go through the entrance then to the left
past the farm house there is a remote pitch by the wood if you want
seclusion.
