Toiletries and Medical Supplies:
You will definitely want something to protect you from the fierce Scottish Midgie if you are here from May through to September, and I would suggest "Avon" (brand name) "Skin So Soft" oil to slap on as it really works. Midgies can make your life a misery if you are outdoors in the calm, so come prepared!
You can buy it in local shops, but it is twice the price compared to buying it on-line direct from Avon! And you get super soft skin too!!
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: In Oban, we can get all seasons in one day - and I think this is something which is common across all of Scotland! It is a good idea to be prepared if you are going on a day out. A day which starts off sunny, may be raining by lunchtime! This year (2006) it is unseasonally cold. Although we are nearly in June, it is still quite cold and wet!
Luggage and bags:
Glenco is owned & managed by the National Trust for Scotland. They have an eco friendly policy here, hence there are no litter bins anywhere. So please respect this & take your litter home.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If you plan on hill walking or just a stroll hiking boots are a must. The terrain changes & conditions can be very wet & slippery. Climbing the mountains is really only for the experienced.
