East coast

Hi we are planing a road trip for next summer along the east coast in a motorhome and  looking for recommendations of campsite that we can stay for one night.  Also as my son is a keen photographer  any recommendations of places to stop along the way.  I am always on the lookout for any local foods specialities  if you have any suggestions that we can try.

    Hi @Newtoscotland
    You can sample Arbroath smokies which are a type of smoked haddock and as its name suggests comes from Arbroath on the East Coast. For more Scottish specialities, please open this link
    I recommend seeing/visiting Dunnottar Castle near Stonehaven. It's a wonderful setting and provides an opportunity for great photos. Also a visit to Footdee in Aberdeen is a wonderful experience.
    I wish you a great holiday in Scotland next year.

    Hello! As you drive along the east coast you'll encounter plenty of lovely villages throughout Fife that should be great for photographing! I also recommend if you pass through St Andrews to climb to the top of the tower as the views out to sea are stunning and very photogenic :) 

    Stonehaven is also home to one of the top fish n chip shops in Scotland so make sure you stop in and get yourself a takeaway with chips, fish and mushie peas!

    Hey @Newtoscotland, welcome to the Community!  North Berwick, Edinburgh, Dundee, Aberdeen and Banff are great places to stop by too.  Fife is a great place for traditional and local produce so have a wee look and see what you can find!

    Also, @Newtoscotland, here's a map of some caravan sites in the east coast of Scotland, north of the Forth.
