I've been pre-planning my packing to Scotland already...yes, I know it's still months away, but I couldn't help myself. And since we will be there in August, it's going to be the hottest time of the year which isn't even hot compared to what we're used to here in Indy. I think the average high during August in Scotland is upper 60s so it will be quite the climate change heading that way.
I just bought some waterproof hiking boots from Timberland pictured above and the Herschel Little America waterproof backpack. I'm planning on keeping my camera and equiptment, wallet, phone, etc. in the backpack and just leaving my purse at home. The less to carry around, the better and I figured having it all on my back safe from water will make sightseeing much easier. It isn't terribly rainy in August, but rain is definitely expected so I am going prepared. Lots of hats to combat frizzy, humid hair and layers for cooler weather. I am still looking for a rain jacket that's not crazy expensive. I really love the one above from Urban Outfitters, but $80 is just way too much for a rain jacket for me. So if you have any less expensive suggestions, I'm all ears. I wanted something really light because I'll just wear sweaters if it's cold which I don't think it will be.
And I've been actually using pinterest lately for looking at Scotland photos. Haha! I just sit around and tear up looking at pretty pictures. August can't come soon enough.

Keep finding crazy beautiful photos on pinterest but I cannot find the original photographers even when I do a google reverse image search. :/ If you know the photographers, let me know and I will add them to the caption!
