Review of the Leisurewise Portawash



Having spend a fortune over the past few years in the laundry at sites I decided that now I have the bigger motorhome I would invest in one of the small portable washing machines. Having done a little homework the Portawash model came up as the best value for money. This reviews shows you how well the little twin tube works.

Plymouth Hoe & The Wave of Poppy's





Had a look around Plymouth Hoe today and was amazed at the Wave of Poppy's. The sun was low as I was doing the last bit of filming and I was humbled when I saw the wave of poppy's.

Views of St Micheal’s Mount and Mousehole



A very short video of a trip to St Michaels Mount and Mousehole on a very cold Sunday in November.

I was surprised at the amount of people in Mousehole, found out that there would be fireworks in the evening which might explain it !

Falls of Shin - Scotland Holiday Day 5



Day 5 of our holiday in Scotland and we head off to the Falls Of Shin just outside of Bona Bridge. Like every other place we have visited in Scotland its breath taking and much to my amusement we find another electric car charging point, even funny is that my card actually works and unlocks the charger !

The Falls of Shin are worth a visit and if you watch carefully you can see the fish jumping upstream which is brilliant to watch. We again have something to eat at the Falls Cafe, it is again expensive but the food is excellent and there is plenty of it.

Leaving the Falls we turn left out of the car park and follow the back roads towards Lairg, following the river we find a small suspension bridge we walk across and take a few pictures.

All in all another good day out and if you take out the cost of food in the cafe its a free day out !

Dornoch & The Historylinks Museum - Scotland Holiday Day 4



Day 4 of our holiday and after the long drive yesterday we decided to have a short drive day. I asked for ideas on the motorhome madness group on facebook and a lady suggested The Historylinks Museum in Dornoch.

Not knowing what to expected we ventured along and I have to say very impressed with the little museum. The volunteers are very helpful and the quiz kept my kids amused for over an hour.

After leaving the museum we had a look around Dormoch and had lunch in the Old Courtroom. Food was very nice if a little expensive. Overall a good day again …..

John O’Groats & Dunnet Head - Scotland Holiday Day 3



Day 3 of our holiday in the Highlands and bylands of Scotland. We ventured as far as we could North today up to John O’Groats and then across to Dunnet Head, as far North as you can go on the British Mainland without getting wet.

Please excuse the wind noise on parts of the video it was blowing somewhat, especially at Dunnet Head. I wanted to venture around the lighthouse but wasn’t able to.

I did notice a village just outside of Wick offering a FREE camper and motorhome stop with electric hook up, it looked just like an Aire, nice to see. There was a donation box which if I ever have a chance to use I would happily put £5 into.

Loch Ness Exhibition - Scotland Holiday Day 2





After a wet and horrible start the sun came out and we decided to head towards the Loch Ness Exhibition. We tried to book the Loch Cruise but it was fully booked not only for the Tuesday but the Wednesday as well. It was worth the 70 odd miles to get to it and we enjoyed what we saw and learned in the exhibition.

As we left the exhibition we decided to head the main road towards Inverness instead of the back roads that we arrived on. We managed to stop along the banks of Loch Ness, all be it the road noise was horrid. I had been told that you cant overnight stop in a motorhome in any of the laybys but at no point in any of the six laybys I pulled into could I find a notice stating No over Camping.

All in all a good day, kids educated, money spent, more amazing views and everyone exhausted and needing a sleep.

Dunrobin Castle - Scotland Holiday Day 1





Day 1 of our holiday and we decided to take a trip to visit Dunrobin Castle, just outside of Golspie. On the way there we pass Loch Fleet and I stop and take a few shots of the Seals on the sandbank. Onwards to the castle, we have a look around and I get told off for video use in the castle, I didn't see the sign and the guy on the desk didn’t mention it when I started filming.

I didn't film much but I did have to get a good look around all the VW's which was mainly down to my son Lewis.

Also purchased our Jofli Bear so we can start to build our Jofli Bear Album. I'll post more details about this in a later post ... Enjoy
