Advantages Sunshine between showers.
I apologise for hi-jacking (yet again) a general category, but the simple fact is this. No two destinations are the same. So general lists, though helpful, do not adequately cover all eventualities.So, if travelling to Scotland this summer, please remember it may be similar to winter in many other parts of this universe.
Here are a few suggestions.
2. Thermal Underwear
Hopefully you won’t need it, and the Scottish Tourist Board will vehemently deny the necessity, at least in the month of July. But a ground frost in the Highland Glens, even in July, is not unknown. This applies especially if you are camping, but is also advisable if you’re doing B&B in some remote Highland parts. Central Heating may consist of a peat fire in the centre of the living room. And of course, it is only lit between the months of October and March. (We have to be environmentally responsible and protect our bogs.)
4. A Spade or Shovel
This is not essential, but common courtesy. Following on from three above, it is the decent thing to do. Dig a hole and bury it.
Goes without saying, really. Even if the sun is shining, chances are the puddles are ankle deep. Also, wellies help you blend in with the locals. Only tourists wear trainers. And if you have a bovine bent – well we won’t go into that, but that’s the wonder of woollies.
