Bring a good map to help you navigate the area in your motorhome rental, or use Google Maps to plan your journey

Make sure you take any essentials if you’re you’re heading out of the city in your motorhome hire, as chances are you may not be able to pick stuff up locally. 

It can get very cold at night in Scotland, so bring extra-warm clothing.

Midges are not usually a problem in and around Edinburgh - but they may drive you daft if you travel to the damper west coast of Scotland.
