Packing for a beach holiday isn’t particularly difficult to do. Most people just bring some swimwear and a few t-shirts. Packing for a holiday at a hotel in the countryside can be more difficult – especially in a country like Scotland where the weather can often be unpredictable. However, as with so many things in life, planning in advance is the key to success. Doing a little bit of research about the hotel you will be staying in and the surrounding area can make it far easier to pack for a relaxing and successful holiday.
Buying clothes for your holiday
Many of us enjoy indulging in a little bit of shopping before jumping on a plane and heading off on a trip. This is just as common when it comes to a holiday in the countryside but keep in mind that slightly different items may be required. For instance, a fashionable trenchcoat can be a great choice of garment for a trip where there is the risk of rain. Many hotels in the countryside are surrounded by beautiful landscapes which positively beg to be explored. That’s why it’s important to make sure that a little rain won’t spoil any walking plans. Bringing a trenchcoat or other type of waterproof outerwear is a great way of taking care of this problem.
Which clothes to bring
As well as a waterproof coat, it’s essential that travellers to the countryside bring plenty of warm clothing. The countryside can get significantly colder than cities and even in summer cloudless nights can bring very low temperatures so check the weather forecast regularly. A great way to stay cosy without the risk of overheating is to bring plenty of layers that can be put on or taken off depending on the weather. If you do decide to do this, make sure that the hotel you decide to book has plenty of wardrobe space where your clothes can be securely stored. There is nothing worse than a hotel room which is strewn with clothes because there is nowhere else to put them. If you do decide to take our advice, make sure you take the time to unpack when you first arrive so that it is easy to find everything.
