Visiting from USA in April 2018
My boyfriend is from Scotland but now lives in the U.S.
We are going to visit his family in April and I am not sure what to expect. I am from California, where it is mostly hot (even in the winter), Hardly ever rain, and I wear flip flops year round! He is not really great at describing anything and I do not know how to dress, or what to expect while I am there.
I am very much looking forward to my visit and would like to see and do as much as I can while I am there but the reality is that he will want to visit with family and friends so I may only have a few days to do anything.
So after my long winded explanation, I would like advice on what I should wear? How is the weather in April? Should I invest in some good closed toed walking shoes that would be good in rain? Do I need a big coat?
Also, we will be in East Kilbride, what is there to do nearby? what are the must do/see things I should know about.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
