Soft luggage bags are more practical to bring on your trip as they are easier to store in the Motorhome than hard shelled suitcases. Always take into consideration limited storage in some of the motorhomes. Pack for the Scottish weather.

• Medical insurance – If you are a European citizen an EHIC card (European Health Insurance Card) is advisable as this covers basic medical treatment due to illness/accident. Apply for this card if travelling from mainland Europe. If travelling from outside the EU – always ensure you have adequate medical insurance.
