The Second Coolest Campsite in Scotland

It is run by this man, Trevor Potts, and it is just beyond the village of Kilchoan on the Ardnamurchan peninsula.

He's also a kayaking legend, but more of that later.

I called in on Trevor as I cycled past. He's had a great year, but not too many kayakers. Which is surprising as there are load around and he is mentioned in The Scottish Sea Kayak Trail.
