Day two - Our first wild camp

... Scotland side). The girls won! It was very random, but the facts really stuck in my brain this way. Tonight we found our first wild camping spot next to the Falkirk wheel. It was a coach park but fully legal. Didn't get much sleep though as it was our first wild camp, it was pouring with rain and there were cars going up and down the ...

It was a desolate place, heather wrapped, flat and lonely, and, on the day we were there, eerily bright and quiet. Chris told a passionate tale, and a credible one: laying the blame not just on the English, not just on the Protestants, not on any one group really, but explaining it, as is the case with much of history, as a battle of grey areas: unfortunate, ghastly and tragic.
