That said, I had my arm twisted at the weekend and got whisked away for my first wild camping expedition. Location, Location, Location Location and weather are obviously key factors to the success of a trip of this nature, and as luck would have it the Scottish weather played ball – perhaps a little chilly, with the north westerly wind coming in later on in the evening but otherwise it was pretty good.
