Scotland Trip Advisor
To enjoy Scotland to the full, it is best
to be prepared for large daily changes in temperature, and
for rain, though it rains far less in Scotland than you might
imagine. Scotland's climate is highly unpredictable. Weather patterns
shift all the time, and the climate can differ widely in places
only a short distance apart.
travelling to Scotland by air,
it is best to pack items such as scissors, nail-clippers, and
any other objects which maybe construed as having the potential
to be a weapon, in your suitcase !!!
Always pack a mixture of warm-weather and cooll-weather
clothes. A raincoat or parka with a hood is far better than carrying
an umbrella. Good walking shoes, already broken-in, are essential.
Gloves and a scarf will take up little room in your suitcase, and yet may make all the difference on a cool evening. To
pack well for Scotland, you need to grasp the concept of " layering,
" adding and removing layers of clothing as the climate changes
throughout your trip.
It has been my experience that visitors to Scotland will often start
each day wearing; good shoes or sneakers, casual pants or
jeans, a t-shirt, a sweater and a hooded jacket or coat. As the
day warms up they will typically dispense with the jacket and
sweater, or maybe add the gloves and the scarf if the weather
takes a turn for the worst. The secret of packing for an enjoyable
vacation is including the right kind of clothing which will keep
you comfortable regardless of the weather.
