Have hired a motor home to tour in. Hoping to visit, Loch Lomond, Fort William, Loch Ness, Inverness & Stirling. Can anyone recommend good sites to stay on or offer any helpful tips.

We have done the west coast roughly from Loch Lomond to Fort William (then on to Inverness occasionally) across to Arisaig, Inverary around to Oban and we 'follow our noses'.  Once we are somewhere that looks nice it's a quick 'google' to find a site.  However a lot depends on if you are 'club' members (affects the price considerably) and indeed where you like to be/facilities etc you desire.  If it is scenery and a bit remote there's a host to choose from.  If it is close to town I can recommend Roseview Caravan Park at/near to Oban as we tend to go more for the scenery sites than close to town.  If going to Oban I thoroughly recommend the Calmac Three Islands tour....it really is well worth the effort to do it......we stayed at Roseview because of doing the Isles tour.  It's a short taxi ride into/back from Oban.  Scenic sites are Luss, Bunree and a lovely working croft out at Arisaig called Invercambie caravan and camping site but doesn't open until March 15th. 

There is so much beautiful scenery and history up there if you just keep a look out and are prepared to 'explore'.  Glen Coe is a must as is Rannoch Moor for the sheer bleakness.  It really is a beautiful place.  We did a few 'B' roads last time and found ourselves in fabulously beautiful Glens, some lovely out of the way places to refresh...coffee/cake....really really lovely, some amazing waterfalls and a part of the Caledonian canal with a plaque commemorating some royal occasion..possibly a reopening by the Queen IIRC.  

Basically if you are prepared to just go with the wonderlust and aim for somewhere you would 'like' to be then go with the impulse you will find some amazing places.....and a google search will invariably find you a site to pitch up for the night.

Things to see....Commando Memorial, Faslane (good viewpoint from the A817 from Loch Lomond)...Inverary (Castle and waterside...oh and jail)...the Glenfinnan Viaduct just off the A830 Fort William to Mallaig road....cable car up Nevis range near Ft William......etc....etc....food for thought.

Oh and if you do venture along some 'B' roads please do the courteous thing and pull over soonest to allow 'faster' traffic to pass.....they are probably working...you are touring.
