What to Wear in Scotland during the month of October?

Jump to last reply

I'm going to Scotland in October and I need help in figuring out what is the best attire to wear while I'm there.

I've been reading all over the internet and I think I've only made myself more confused.

I was thinking of taking my leather 3/4 length trench coat. This coat has worked well for me on my trips to Chicago, IL and Salt lake City, Utah. I usually layer my clothing when I wear this coat in order to avoid wearing a bulky winter coat. This has worked well for me in the past...but I'm not sure if this will work for Scotland in October. I've read the historical weather conditions and it appears that it's likely that it will be raining nearly everyday.

So, should I buy a rain coat? Or will a durable leather trench coat work?? Also, the tour I'm going to be on will require some walking so a good pair of hiking boots?

Help help... all ideas will be welcomed!!
