I'm planning a trip to do the Arrochar Alps route described in Dan Bailey's book Great Mountain Days in Scotland, taking two days to complete the route with wild camp on the hills somewhere. His route starts and finishes at the visitor centre in Inveruglas. I gather I can park overnight there, but I would actually need to leave the car for more than 24 hours - ie: Arrive stupid early on Day 1, walk day 1, camp, walk day 2, arrive back at car potentially 30-odd hours after I started.
I have checked the relevant websites and also contacted the National Park directly but for some reason haven't been able to get a definitive answer so I was hoping someone might know. So:
- Can I pay for more than 24 hours?
Can I pay at the machines or do I need to book in advance?
Is there a better option elsewhere (bearing in mind I'm not local so "that little alleyway behind Dave's house" probably won't help )
