Tomorrow we fly to Scotland, where we will have a two-week stay and a circular route of over 1500 km. From Edi via Loch Lomond, Skye, Glen Afric to Inverness, then to Elgin, Balmoral, Stonehaven, Dundee, St. Andrews and back to Edi. In the meantime, other hikes into nature and sleeping in it await us. So let's look at things that fit and how they say what a car will drive.

Preparations for Scotland

Itinerary

Tomorrow we fly to Scotland, where we will have a two-week stay and a circular route of over 1500 km. From Edi via Loch Lomond, Skye, Glen Afric to Inverness, then to Elgin, Balmoral, Stonehaven, Dundee, St. Andrews and back to Edi. In the meantime, other hikes into nature and sleeping in it await us. So let's look at things that fit and how they say what a car will drive. The first things that were needed were a ticket and accommodation in Edi, where we will have a tour of the capital and car rental the next day. In addition to the necessary things like a passport, money – Beware of pounds going through a change to plastic money, so change quickly. I chose waterproof clothing. Scotland is renowned for the volatile weather. Otherwise, nothing special from classic clothes. I even preferred to add a mosquito net to my face because of the Mosquitoes, but now there may not be that many in May. Furthermore, sleeping bag, inflatable mat. Among the smaller things, I don't forget the flashlight and I use a headlamp with the possibility of green light, which does not strike my eyes, so it is natural and when I move in national parks I cannot be seen, as in the silence of other lights that can betray a person. I like nostalgia, so I bring a candle with me and I switched to a lamp from UCO. The advantage of candles. It's a pleasant light, it can kill annoying insects and most importantly it's an infinitely long flame that matches, lighters and others can't provide. In addition, UCO candles have one interesting feature, as they are small they burn for 12 hours and they have a special wax that does not flow, so the flame is still bright. Another thing I take with me is a voltage converter. There are different power converters. And what exactly is the voltage converter. It is a box that can be connected to a cigarette lighter or a flashlight at a car and changes the voltage from 12V to 230V, so it is suitable for charging cameras and other electronics. The stronger ones also move the kettle and power tools. These are things that are certain. Anyway, I still have a knife with me and I also took a hacksaw from Husquarna, which is for a wood camp. What helped us in planning the trip, certainly Mapy.cz and Googlemaps.com, but it was also, above all, from Lonely Planet's guide to Scotland, which was useful. Since we will live in camps, you also need to know the camps and there is a great mobile application WikiCamps UK, which works offline, just as good is to download Scotland on mapách.cz, but for sure I also have the Map of Scotland application Off-line. And all year round, what I have, the First Aid application is downloaded, in addition to good advice, there are also contacts for help and there are also pre-prepared sentences – it's a pity that there are no more quiet sentences. As for the first aid kit, I have various ointments, as well as Sanosil water disinfection, but I still have an American Sawyer water filter. He helped me a lot in America, for example, because the water from the order is really disgusting and thanks to filtration the taste is broken. So keep your fingers crossed for us and 14.5. again in the republic.
