10 days in Scotland

HI, My cousin and I are coming into Edinburgh in early JUne of 2017.  We have booked tours with Rabbies for the Isle of Lewis and Harris to see the standing stones.  We will also be going to Skye.  What is the best type of clothing to bring for this time of year?  Trying to get by with one carry on bag a piece, but its not looking to good.  Lol.

    Hi again @Teani. As you would expect, it will be warmer at this time of year, so pack some summery clothes for sure!  However, you may be aware, we aren't quite blessed with sunny skies all the time!

    I would recommend bringing a fleece jacket, perhaps a couple of jumpers and a good waterproof jacket. If you are planning to do some walking, bear in mind it can be cold up in the hills, so bring a hat and gloves!  Skye, Lewis and Harris are beautiful, you will have a fantastic trip!  :)
