Hi all,

I'm obviously not looking for specific locations, but, can anyone give me an idea of the BritStops coverage in Scotland?

All too often, things like this are thin on the ground north of the border.

Thanks in advance.

Tommy.

If you look at the Britstops map online, there are quite a lot shown in Scotland.

I signed up for Britstops a few years back but didn't renew afterwards as +95% of the places seemed to be pubs shrugg

I use Britstops and there seem to be quite a few places in the book. 
However I've recently been made aware of this site and it looks really good, we will be using it alongside Britstops for our trip in Scotland come May - hopefully I'm OK to put the link up here [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I guess it depends what you want, but on the few occasions we do an outing in the UK, we find a friendly pub stop is ideal at the end of the day.

Thanks Tinwheeler.

I did see the map, but, I wasn't sure whether or not the map was an accurate reflection of numbers and locations.

Thinking the same we are going to cross the border and head for the N/E side of Scotland early July. We have just ordered the Britstops book as a one off to see how it works. Our idea was to use Britstops and wild camping between sites using sites facilities to empty tanks etc.
We can vouch for Avon vers the wee beesty midges on the west coast and the Hebrdies on previous trips. Many years ago I walked in the Glen Afick area with my father and our springer. We were bitten badly but the dog came off worse with the midges. They drove her mad she was crawling with midges. The only relief for her was rolling in the river at every chance. Management is a magnet for biting things., maybe I should chuck her in a stream like the dog lol4.
Once we get the book I will report back once we have used a couple of stops.

I've just done a quick count and I recon we used Britstops on 8 occasions last year, all pubs. Two of those nights were on the way back from a trip to Slovenia because we decided to meander home after leaving the ferry at Newhaven.
I think I mentioned in another thread, that all were positive experiences apart from one pub not far from Bridlington. The Britstops book said 5 motorhomes max, we were the third in the carpark at 6pm and had an enjoyable meal in the pub. By midnight the carpark was packed with vans, we counted 12, most arrived near closing time and left at 8am, contributing nothing to the pub other than putting rubbish in their bins.
I doubt the pub will be part of the scheme this year.

The Ship Inn Sewerby, you maybe referring has gone down hill in recent years, I don't know if the prices have shot up or what, my son made enquires there, but didn't stop.
We had the 2017 book ,but only used out stop over ,others were packed with foreign vans filling up what little space available .
