Allanaha Farm

 This is night No.14/2020 living in the caravan. We (that's me and the dogs) are at a CL near Nairn, Allanaha Farm.

Allanaha Farm is a real stripped back CL. Water, waste disposal, and a bin. No electricity, and no toilet block. This is the way CL's should be. And all for £5 a night.

It's actually only about a mile from the last CL I stayed at, the CL at Geddes House. I really do like this area, and it has fantastic walking and great scenery. It's got beaches, rivers, hills, and towns all nearby. Cawdor and it's castle are a few miles away, and the famous Brackla Distillery is around a mile away.

Booked the CL in the morning, and left around lunchtime for the 2hr drive north. We left in great weather.

It's also my first trip towing with my new car, a more up to date RAV4.

Stopped at Bin Forest near Huntly, where I normally do, and gave the dogs a good 40 min blast around the woods.

They're both really familiar with this walk as it's a great half way break for me on trips up north.

After arrival, set up the solar panel which was pushing out some good power to the battery. With this output, I can watch TV, charge phones and charge my MacBook.

The dogs enjoying running around mad. We're the only folk here! The lady who owns the site had told me this morning that I'd have the place to myself! What a contrast to regular sites which, when I checked, are all booked out full?

And as per usual, the Moray weather was warm and dry with a light breeze.

A lovely patch of ground with a drinking water tap and waste point. Some beautiful mature trees to pitch between.

And I always like to see something a wee bit different. The farm here are growing oats.

This was the first time I'd pitched my new Kampa Air Awning. I had one of these with my previous Puck, but this 2020 model definitely has a few minor improvements. There is now a door (the panel in the picture) and the material now wraps around the front and rear of the van, I assume, to avoid water ingress.
A very heavy but easily pitched awning.

I'm intending to stay a few nights here, but I'll see how the weather pans out. Looking forward to some great walks.
