Winter Camping/Ribbing in Scotland
Evening Guys, I tentatively ask this question as I've only recently joined the forum but lurked for a good while now. I've been searching for a little while but struggling to find what i'm looking for, some may thing we're mad! I'm looking for Winter Ribbing/Camping locations, but specifically some knowledge from people who know the area.
My friend and I regularly winter camp, so the prospect of cold and wet weather is something that doesn't bother us, but if anything presents an exciting challenge that we wait all year for.
In years past i've done some winter camping whilst canoeing and have experienced the change in conditions, we've also done a fair few camps over the summer in my Rib, and the last a couple of weeks ago on the Solway Coast, but found on our last visit the Weather a little too torrid for my SR4.
In essence i'm looking for some new locations that people have had experience with over winter before. We're looking at putting in another 1 week camp at somepoint in december, and We love the isolation that the Rib provides, however i'm really not sure where to go.
Weather is always something that cant be relied upon, but I know some areas are more sheltered on others.
Can anyone give any ideas of locations we could look into for our December camp? We're from Sheffield so really a 5-6hr drive would be about the Limit.... anything we need we take with us (and also comes home) so amenities aren't an issue, if there are some opportunities for exploration that would be brilliant, but not essential. We fill the week with bushcraft and photography, with some boat trips in-between to aid the trip usually.
Thanks in advance for any Advice, (PS both inland lochs and sea lochs are an option, conditions and safety are more the priority for the trip)
