Britain does not end at Hadrian's Wall. MSN seems incapable of unbiased journalism, last I checked Britain included Scotland, Wales and England.
Haha, really, lots of England is beautiful, Devon, Cornwall etc, however I could list 4 places in Scotland within two hours drive of glasgow that are stunning on a WORLD stage. Try to remember that there are other places in Britain NOT whthin the confines of England.
Good point on midges though, but worth the annoyance.
Not one of these places would come close to the top 11 destinations in Scotland.
Applecross, Black Ness, Glen Nevis, Glen Etive, Aviemore, Isle of Skye, The Cairngorms, Arisaig, Oban....will I continue?
MSN have really outdone themselves this time. This has to be one of the poorest selection of camping sites out of our rich selection of locations. Please change "... spots in Britain" to "... spots in England." I dare you to camp under the shadow of Ben Nevis!!
Here we go again, its just like the Olympics, if a WELSHMAN wins an event its well done BRITAIN, if a SCOTSMAN wins an event its well done BRITAIN, IF AN ENGLISHMAN wins an event itsWELL done ENGLAND.
There are more things and places to see in the country than bombarding us with ENGLAND, MSN,
BRITAIN RULED THE WAVES, AND WON THE WAR, NOT, WHATS IT CALLED? OH YES WELL DONE ENGLAND.
FROM A PERSON WHO DOES NOT LIVE IN ENGLAND.
During the Queen's,s diamond jubilee celebrations campers in Castle Ward camping park e told to remove Union Flag bunting from there gazebo,so much for a National Trust property.
Sorry to be "rational" here but you'll see that the sites are from the "NATIONAL TRUST" not the "Scottish National Trust" which will explain why there are no Scottish camp sites. It does'nt explain why the Travel editor at MSN can't tell the difference between Britain and its contituent parts.
