They say in Scotland, if you don’t like the weather, wait 5 minutes.
Although this cliche raises a smile, it also gives a slither of insight in how to prepare for Summer hiking in Scotland.
We have been taking folk on hiking holidays in Scotland for over 16 years. Our combined hiking experience amongst the team must stretch out to over 750 years! So we feel qualified to give some sartorial advice. Here’s our essential gear list for summer hiking in Scotland.
- Browse our range of walking holidays in the Highlands.
We are going to explain our clothing choices below and how these items can work together to keep you warm, dry and happy while hiking in the hills. We are also going to recommend some clothing and kit from outdoor manufacturers that we love. Disclaimer – we do have a partnership with Haglofs so there are quite a few nods in their direction. However, we truly believe they make fantastically comfortable, high-performance and durable outdoor gear.
(Modelling the kit in our short video is Jo Unda from our office team, thanks Jo!)
