The cost of the parking at Linn O Dee is voluntary, You either pay it or you don't,there is no authority to impose any fines or clamping etc'.
I have a Camper Van and park at Linn O Dee often as The Bothies can be full or in the case of the nearest one,The Bob Scott Bothy,contain a lot of non-walkers who are there with there so xcalled Girlfriends for a One night stand or for a bethy party,either way you don't get a decent night's kip and what's the good of getting into a fight with 5 teenagers and going Home with a cut face,oh The Teenagers were a bit cut too and I do hope the Blonde one got His Ear stitched back on, or part of it,the rest of it I chucked in the River when I washed my hands and all because I asked them to stop smoking there wacky backy,the idea of doing the Derry Cairngorm-Macdui-Carn a' Mhaim Horseshoe with a Nights cannabis Inhalation did NOT appeal to Me.
Anyway that's the reason I bought the Camper Van that and the fact they might have tried to get me arrested for defending myself,5 voices speak louder than One,had I ever bump into them again,although this time I am certain they will think twice before attacking an old man.
I would say definitely N#S A good start with an Aviemore breakfast,get the worst overwith early on, take Mikes suggested route to Victoria Bridge back down the road to Inverie about 1km. phone box, taxi. from Braemar £7 last time I used it , good dinner in Braemar . Cheers
Hi guys, thinking of doing the mcdui horsehoe in the summer with a couple of nights wild camp. Is it ok parking in Aviemore down a side street if one exists that is not yellow lined? If so I plan to start and finish here. Any help or advice would be appreciated.
It would be easier to park your car at the start of the walk at Coylumbridge beside the caravan site. There is a rough piece of ground at the side of the road where folks park their cars.
Thanks for that. Presumably these car parks are not displayed as not 24 hr or no overnight stays clamping in operation etc etc?
Clamping is illegal in Scotland, so don't worry about that. I tend not to notice signs.
