Cashel May 2008 - a set on Flickr

I haven't posted in a very long time, too many projects going on at the moment and not even enough time during my work day to make a post :)

One of the projects my wife and I have been working on is converting an LDV panel van into a camper, we started this last year and did the bulk of the work almost straight away. However, it's an on going project where over weekends I'll potter away fitting shelves, cutting holes in the side of the van or doing something... We decided to take it out for a test camp last weekend near Loch Lomond. Louise was recommended a campsite called Cashel run by the Forestry Commission and we booked it for the May holiday weekend.

We were lucky enough to have some good weather - though it did rain quite hard on the Sunday! For the most part we just spent the weekend relaxing or going on short walks with our dog. Thoroughly enjoyed it and recommend this peaceful site for anyone! It also got me photographing again after a long period of taking progress pictures of the campervan conversion it was great to get out and take pictures of the countryside!!

We arrived on the Friday night and left the site on Monday morning, on the way back we decided to stop off at Balmaha which at 11.30 was very busy! The car park was overflowing so we decided instead to travel to Balloch. This had more parking so we were able to park up and walk around. I think we left at around 2pm and were amazed at the amount of traffic queued back on the A82 waiting to visit the Shores of Loch Lomond! Glad we got out when we could.

A great little trip, helped us decide where to build cupboards and their contents in the van and also test out all the functions which worked fine!

I've uploaded my photos to Flickr!
