Exactly one week from today we embark for Scotland! I haven't been this excited for a trip in a while. The Scottish Highlands have been on my bucket list for quite some time now & I can't believe this adventure is so close! I'm so pumped for this trip that I've been working on my packing list since before we even bought the plane tickets.
I've done some fairly extensive research on what to wear in Scotland - the weather is so unpredictable! - and the general consensus is layers, layers, layers. With the packing list I've put together I'm able to mix and match everything while also being able to layer almost every item listed. My friends always give me a hard time because literally everything I own is black, white, grey, denim, tan, or dark green. I don't live in too much color but it makes it so easy to pack for travel. Everything goes together! I've also heard to definitely pack waterproof shoes, especially if you plan to do any hiking (of course we do!) so I invested in a Chelsea-style rain bootie by Sam Edelman. Another must-pack is a jacket for rainy weather so I'm taking two: a casual one for day-to-day wear when hiking & exploring (from Columbia) and a nicer one for times that we're adventuring in the city (from Barbour).
Below are the names of and links to the clothing items I'm packing as they're seen in the picture collage above.
White button-up // Casual rain jacket
Black jeans // Chambray top // Versatile sweater // Black dress
Dark jeans // White v-neck tee // Black floppy hat
Dressier light-weight jacket // Light-weight scarf
Comfy rain boots // Flannel top
Black flats // Sneakers // Dressier white top // Denim jacket
Cardigan // Tights // Assorted color tanks // Crossbody bag
In addition to clothing items, we're also packing some tech-y supplies. We plan to take our DSLR camera (Canon Rebel), our new GoPro Hero Session (so pumped to use this!), our converter/adapter combo, & binoculars to spot Scottish wildlife in the Highlands.
Do you all have any suggestions on items to take that we've missed?
