Early September weather in Glascow

Hello, I am travelling to Glascow the fourth of September for a week. I am recovering from a knee fracture and won't be able to walk a lot. Planning to do a tour to the highlands with the < discover scotland day tours>. Another day to Edimburegh. The rest walking leisurerly around the city center. My question is what to pack expecting an unpredictable weather!!! Any idea whatelse I can do?
I will be staying in the Grand central hotel, on top of the train station, to make it easy for me to go around!
Would appreciate all suggestions.
Thank you

It should still be warm (by Scottish standards). Bring a fleece, one warm pullover and light weight waterproofs

It's GlaGow, and EdiNburgh, in case you're searching

"It's GlaGow, and EdiNburgh, in case you're searching"

and "Glasgo" and "Edinboro" if you have to pronounce them, though the Locals may say "Glezgie". No cow, no burg.

Ask someone at your hotel how to pronounce the name of the town "Milngavie" or the name of the news agents "Menzies". You won't believe it!

You may get debate on "Menzies" because so many people have moved to Scotland from elsewhere, and pronunciation differs around the country anyway.

People always seem to have trouble with these city names.

Glasgow, pronounced "Glaz-go"

Edinburgh, pronounced "EdinBURRAH"

In Glasgow there is the cathedral and the necropolis where all the great and good of Glasgow are buried. Money was no object when it came to their graves. Prebend's Lordship is opposite the cathedral and the oldest house in Glasgow. Museums are free and good - try the Peoples Palace and Kelvingrove Museum. There is also the Burrel Collection, the eclectic collection of a wealthy shipping merchant left to the city of Glasgow.

Take the train to Helensburgh and visit the Hill House designed for a publisher by the iconic Glasgow architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

Catch the train from Glasgow Central Station to Ardrossan Harbour and catch a ferry to Brodick on the Isle of Arran. Brodick CAstle and gardens is worth a visit.

No one has mentioned a pair of comfortable shoes for walking round Glasgow.....
