I have an XCR Gortex jacket and its fantastic. Very lightweight and warmer than a Paclite, totally waterproof and has a sort of inbuilt cap in the hood to keep the water from running into your face. Lots of handy pockets, zips and string to pull to keep you WATERTIGHT!

cost around the 300 euro mark but worth every penny.

Wow...okay, now I know why my friend is always cursing about them..
Thanks for the heads up, and I'll make sure we steer clear of those guys.

As for the weather, thats not a big deal to us, the whole 'every weather pattern' durring a day isn't anything new to us, that can happen at the height of summer over here, so I don't think we really have anything to worry about.
But thanks for the tips.

And as for that jacket. DEAR CRIPES MAN WHAT WERE YOU THINKING! I mean, 300 euro's... damn I don't even wanna convert that into canadian dollars...but thats one hell of a hefty price. I think I'll just opt for snowboard apparel or something. Lol.
But thanks anyway...even though that price scares the bejeebuz outta me.

I live in Inverness myself and its a beautiful place. People always assum that it always rains and cold. Not true. In September t can be quite nice because our summer is coming later every year. For instance we have just got our christmas snow

if i can help at all feel free to get in touch

I live in Glasgow. To be honest id get a good water proff type jacket liek other people have recommended. Nothing too expensive unless youre planning on going hillwalking. If youre lookign for good nigthlife Glasgow is defo the place to go. Edinburgh is great as well but really touristy, but hey i suppose thats what you'll be looking for. Id recommend Mary King's Close in Edinburgh, which is right on the Royal Mile. Some of the towns North of loch lomond along the west highland way are beautiful. Again, temp work would be your best option. Im a student and some of my friends have done it, its reasonable money and you can pick your days. Anyway, if you need any advice about Scotland just let me know.

hey im born and bread in scotland live south of aberdeen near a place called montrose.
get yourself up to aberdeen for a decent place to venture out in to the countryside and between aberdeen and dundee (60 miles) is where im from theres great hills call the cairn o mount hitting that will take you to a bunch of tiny villages to towns such a banchory which leads out of aberdeen.
lots of camp sites on the way, heaps of rivers and creeks to jump in around the countryside and camp.
inverness is worth a look with the nightlife being pretty good for a secluded town city,
i was across in banff canada last feb to snowboard and loved you locals were great to us and im sure youll get a great reception over here,, mostly with the girls,, i took once canadian friend back over here and they were over him like flys round a sh*t! must be your accents.
anyway giveme a shout

Holy cow!
Lost of repliers, and yet none from me!
Thanks a ton for all this information, I've been gearing up pretty nicely.
Lol, and I have definately made sure about the water-proof stuff.

Hey scotty, I've heard of that place, odd... My friend lives up in Aberdeen, so we are going to hunt around and explore as much as possible!
And thanks for the tons of info on the night, we are sure going to be hitting that up, if we have the cash, time, and ohhh the joys of giving yourself a budget.
Yea...we all like accents...too bad we are girls heading over there hahaa...well that could be a good thing...hmm...jk! Anywho!
Yea, banff is a pretty stellar area.
Hopefully we'll get as nice a reception, as you apparently did.
ps. We don't have accents!!!!!!
An I think I might just 'give ya a shout' ahahhaaha.
