Is it safe to travel with children in a Motorhome?
All children less 125cm and 22kg should travel in a car safety seat. We offer Child Safety Seats in our optional extras and will request weigh & height information of the child so that we can offer the correct seat.
As far as possible children should sit in the forward facing seats of the Motorhome in the correct safety seat for their size.
We offer bed rails for younger children at bed time, some models of Motorhome have these available as standard, please ask if you are unsure.

Motorhome in Winter Months
A Motorhome is very cosy and from Autumn through to Spring the colours in Scotland and scenery is wonderful.
We want all of our clients to enjoy their Motorhome holiday regardless of the time of year but when heading off during the winter months you need to safeguard yourself from low temperatures.
When the temperature inside the Motorhome drops below 5 degrees the systems will protect themselves by shutting down and releasing all on board water.
We recommend that you stay on a campsite for a few reasons you will have access to a Motorhome Service Point where you can replenish fresh water, safely dispose of chemical toilet waste and drain off the grey water waster tank. Campsites may have an electric hook up at your pitch as an additional source of power and most have toilet and shower facility blocks.
