    Hello @zoyashermatova

    I think it will also depend what country you're coming from. If you're used to a warmer climate then you are likely to find Scotland quite cold in December so be prepared to rug up with thermals too. I was shocked when I first came here from New Zealand, but now that I've had 4 Scottish winters I find that I'm acclimated.

    Hello, @VisitScotlandAmanda

    @zoyashermatova - I always recommend to people to wear many layers but if you are coming from Russia then I am sure you are well practiced in the art of wrapping up warm. 

    They weather can be beautiful - snow on the hills with blue sky but still bitterly cold. You may still find a need for sunglasses. Either way I would also recommend comfy shoes with a good grip.
