April in Scotland: what you’ll need

Spring is a great time to explore Scotland, when the mountains are still capped with snow, the air not quite so chilly and many attractions are opening for the start of a new season.

But as any Scot will tell you, it’s entirely possible to experience four seasons in one day. Beach in the sun in the morning, snowing in the afternoon.

So bring your woollies.

You can't go wrong with welly boots and waterproofs. After all there’s no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothes.

Heading uphill? Then forget the flip flops and invest in good walking boots.

The only certainty about Scotland in April, is that anything could happen. It’s part of the fun!

    I always carry around a scarf with me in case it gets cold or need to cover up from rain ;)
    Follow my trip around Scotland here  :)
    Also ask me any questions on Instagram or Twitter if you are visiting Aberdeen anytime soon and you need recommendations.

    Definitely a waterproof jacket and shoes, and bringing a scarf is good advice too :)

    Be ready for 4 seasons in one day. So good weatherproof and windproof clothes are required. For shoes good waterproof walking shoes. The ground is still saturated of water, so you want to go for a long walk be prepared.
