Agree - particularly the further south in Europe you go hotels can be REALLY cheap. I was paying £33 to stay in a hotel in the Spanish Pyrenees. Why subject yourself to driving a £40k van, or even worse - sleeping in a tent when you can do that. Photographer friendly too, could leave early for sunrises from the Anral Hotel in Escalona and arrive in late if shooting late in the evening. Pictures will follow in the fullness of time The UK is such a small area that if you are doing Glencoe over 2 days 1 night in a hotel and one in a car is fine. I sleep out between sunsets and sunrises in the car over the summer, its cheaper than driving home and back and pretty comfy if you take a douvet.
