My husband & I (we are in our Mid to late 60’s) will be in Scotland end of August to beginning of September. The average temps show between 55-65 degrees. A friend told me I better bring a warm jacket for the highlands(Skye, north Kessock, Fort William, Inverness & Edinburgh-Tattoo). Not in that order. Would I need anything heavier than a windbreaker? I’m bring cargo & nylons pants for walking around and hiking along with waterproof sneakers. I thought I would throw in a Merino wool sweater or Cashmere. So would that be enough with a windbreaker or should I bring something warmer like a packable puffer jacket? We are also going to the Lake District.?
Thanks for any assistance. Please be nice.
