Scotland in the Winter

Scotland in the Winter

I came across this video today and thought you might also like to see it.

I’ll be adding more detail about travelling around Scotland in the winter.  I have been in a campervan over winter in Scotland and armed with walking boots, warm clothes and a flask of hot tea, set off on some amazing walks.

Free-camping is ok in most places around Scotland so the diesel overnight heater on board was essential when tempertures outside dropped to -6C and the water in the dog bowl froze!

Walking in the snow and having the place to ourselves was just magical.  Don’t be put off but be prepared.  Returning with the glow of a keen wind and finding warmth in the camper after a good stride across the hills is fantastic.

 

Pete’s Dragon – in New Zealand

check out this link to see what Pete’s Dragon sees of New Zealand.

 

Book a campervan to explore the sites that Pete’s Dragon sees http://www.campervans.com/newzealand.html

Take your family to New Zealand to see where the remake of Pete’s Dragon was made.  Explore the country and the sites at your own pace by motorhome.

The setting is Millhaven in America but in reality it is Tapanui in Otago in New Zealand’s grand South Island.

You will also spot Rotorua, Wellington and Queenstown in the movie.

The Shotover Canyon near Queenstown is where Elliot the Dragon flies through and over.

Pete’s Dragon opens in cinemas in September 2016.

The best time to tour New Zealand in a campervan or motorhome is anytime from November to April. It is cooler outside of those months but then you may like it that way!
