Scotland Packing List

 

The weather in the United Kingdom is unpredictable at best.  Your best bet is to plan for wearing layers of clothing. Pack summer clothes with layers in case you get cold, carry a sweatshirt and always have a light rain poncho in your backpack. Plan on wearing pants and shorts 2+ times but pack extra shirts.  DonÕt forget, youÕll be able to do laundry once or twice during our stay.  We will "dress - up" for our farewell dinner.

 

Make sure you bring clean clothes.  Please do not bring really short shorts, halter tops, cut-offs, jeans with holes, shirts with holes, chains, or clothing with offensive wording on it.

Also:

We strongly recommend thinking about a secure way to carry your money.  I wear a money belt under my pant – some days I use a passport carrier around my neck under my shirt.  These are inexpensive at LongÕs or you can get the chic silky kind at REI.

 

Bath and hand towels will be provided – but if you use a face cloth, bring your own

 

Remember to leave room in your suitcase for souvenirs.
