I wanted to ask the most original question of all times here: what's the weather those days?
Let me extend it a little:
I've read that you can get a taste of all the seasons in the same day, this means rain, cold and hot... OK, after reading Scotland can go from 10ºC to 18ºC in those dates, we've are almost decided to buy:
One pair of Gore-tex hiking boots (keep feet warm) (Salomon, Columbia...).
A 100% waterproof jacket and pants (Helly Hansen, Marmot...).
We plan to leave hotels early in the morning (breakfast and go).
Is it too much? we would not like to be the only astronauts in Scotland... it's end of July and beginning of August after all...
I guess in Edinburgh we can dress more casual: same shoes, but jeans and a normal jacket... soft shell or similar...
And... maybe a stupid question... is it even possible go in short sleeves?
Well, again thanks for reading and for all the advice!
