NO: whisky is something which I seem to be able to drink without suffering too many consequences.
In fact, it helps to reduce the number of night-time "trips" [Too much information?]

On Sunday I drove MH 70 miles in order to attend a funeral on Mon pm.
Then we will slowly wander back, stopping off at a couple of campsites.

YES, but he also said " Is it more possible with a campervan than a motorhome?"

HOWEVER, today is my birthday and we've been out for a (semi-liquid) lunch and I now have all the kids & g'kids here, each having brought me a different malt whisky which just HAD to be sampled.
Any responses are slightly ebdfudlde!

Kids are making tea and g'kids are playing "bear hunt" so I have a few minutes to "waste", after "pin the beard on the grandad", "pass the parcel", etc.

H1-GBV By campervan, you are probably thinking of something like a VW.
I would question the suitability of one for 2 adult males and a 76y old woman: I'm not saying that its impossible, but go and have a good look at one in a salesroom before you part with your money.
Obviously it will be easier to park one in a town.
At the vast majority of pubs there will not be access to electricity, which might make things less comfortable for you all.

A motorhome, by which I assume you imply something larger, will be that little more awkward to park and a little more conspicuous on a street, but nothing to worry about.
It will probably have more friendly toilet facilities and even a shower, which means you don't have to rely so much on campsites.

Campsites may well say "no noise after 10pm" but that doesn't mean "inside" the van.
It's just a case of maintaining a peaceful environment and something for which most campers are grateful.

You will read that parking in Scotland is easier than in England, because of local byelaws, BUT if you don't feel safe, move on.

Enjoy - Gordon

jiwawa Have a look at the searchforsites app, also campercontact, park4night. Have a look here for suggestions:

Any pub that has reasonable parking will be open to a request to stay overnight if you're eating or drinking there. They may ask for a fee but are usually happy if you patronise the place.

I doubt there would be much joy in the centres of the bigger cities but, for Edinburgh say, there are numerous campsites around the outskirts with good public transport links. Google is your friend!

Thank you!
