Over the weekend Louise and I had a relaxing stay at a campsite we visited last year. Cobleland is a Forestry Commission campsite and is located on the banks of the river Forth in the Queen Elizabeth Forest near Aberfoyle. The weather was absolutely amazing, even getting a little sunburnt on the Sunday!! It rained a little in Glasgow before we left on Friday, but the sun came out later and kept on shining until we left on Monday!
As before we went on a ranger activity, this time doing an early morning hike through the forest which was thoroughly enjoyable, unfortunately we missed any deer or squirrel though we did spot their traces during the walk. We also had a map of the area with some trails on it so we walked around the yellow trail from Lemahamish.
There have been some improvements to Cobleland from last year, there were more electric hookups available (which meant we were pushed further up the hillside as we use Solar) and the toilet and shower blocks looked like they had been refurbished. A very much recommended campsite which we will be returning to soon.
Next time we might walk up Doon Hill and offer gifts to the fairies...
