Packing List for the Esoteric Quest

While participants are strongly encouraged to pack as lightly as possible, dressing in layers is key when traveling in Scotland. In August, the Scottish midges are out; be prepared to cover up with long pants, long-sleeved shirts and plenty of insect/mosquito repellent.

  • Wool socks
  • Umbrella
  • Warm coat or layers for chilly temperatures (including a warm hat and gloves)
  • Wool sweater
  • Walking stick (if needed or preferred)
  • Day pack (so you can keep another layer of clothing or your rain gear with you at all time)
