  2. Packing Tips


    Bringing the right clothing for your trip is important – we’ve partnered with New Headings who provide an "easy-to-use, one-stop shop" for your Tauck travel needs, specifically selected for this trip. Click here to visit their site.

    The weather in Scotland is moderate but unpredictable. Your journey is designed with leisure in mind. Dress for comfort and convenience with a wardrobe that is adaptable and allows for layering. Generally, during the day, casual, comfortable, cotton clothing is recommended. Cool weather at higher elevations or at night will require warmer, layered clothing.

    In Europe, especially in finer restaurants, it is generally customary to dress somewhat formally. Slacks or a dress for women and a jacket and tie for men are acceptable dining attire, although not required. It is advisable to avoid wearing jeans, sneakers or shorts for dinner. You may also wish to dress up a bit for the welcome reception and the farewell dinner, but by all means be comfortable.

    You will find a hair dryer located in your hotel guest room. Irons and ironing boards are available upon request. Valet laundry and dry cleaning services are also available for a fee.

    We recommend that you pack an adequate supply of your prescription medication in its original container to last through your entire journey, together with a copy of your doctor’s prescription or a letter from your health-care provider on office stationery explaining that the medication has been prescribed for you, a list of the generic names of your medication, your travel documents and a change of clothing in your carry-on bag to avoid any inconvenience in the event that your flight or luggage is delayed.


    Following is a list of recommended items to pack for your trip to Scotland:

    • Casual daytime wear – shorts, slacks, long and short-sleeved shirts
    • An optional jacket and tie for men
    • Casually elegant evening wear for ladies
    • Sunglasses, sunscreen, hat
    • Swimwear
    • Gym wear
    • A light sweater or jacket for higher elevations or a breezy night
    • Binoculars (7x50 preferably)
    • Insect repellent
    • Camera, lenses, batteries, memory cards and/or plenty of film
    • Lightweight, comfortable, sturdy walking shoes that have already been broken-in
    • Battery-operated travel alarm clock
    • Rain poncho and collapsible umbrella
    • Zipper-lock bags
    • Daypack for camera equipment
