What clothing should I bring?

Because we sometimes visit some fairly remote places, your clothing will make a big difference to your comfort during the day. I can give you specific advice nearer the time, but as a general guide:

  • Warm layers (fleece, jumpers, etc).
  • ‘Wicking’ base layers are worth their weight in gold for comfort.
  • ‘Soft shell’ or trekking type trousers are a great choice. They’re more flexible, dry far more quickly than jeans and are more windproof.
  • Waterproof jacket (and perhaps trousers). This should have a hood and taped seams.  Invaluable for keeping the wind off you. Even for summer!
  • Hat and gloves.
  • Walking boots or shoes.
  • Rucksack
  • Camera if required
  • Personal items, depending on season (sunhat, suncream, midge repellant, etc)

More specific advice can be found under each category ( eg: winter skills courses, mountain biking , etc).
