UK Trip Advise

Mrs. Squiggy and I are planning a trip. Flying to London and driving up to Glasgow over the course of 2 weeks in late October.

How much is the weather going to suck?

All I can say is that Glasgow (and Scotland) is rather cold even in the summer (seeing ladies wearing short shorts with thick tights underneath for warmth was rather WTF-ish, so pack your woolies.

Glasgow is rainy in the best of circumstances. It's fun though. Any reason for Glasgow in particular?

The weather is what it is, it'll be cool saying it's Autumn. But it might be sunny.

Re: UK Trip Advise

Well if you are travelling from London to Glasgow by car you'll avoid those moors. As the route once you are out of London would be M40, M42, M6, M74, M8. Though I would recommoned M40, M42, M6 (Toll), M6, M74, M8. Going via the M5 onto the M6 means you'll hit Birmingham and traffic can slow to a crawl around there. Once you get past Preston on the M6 (and certainly Lancaster on the M6) the drive up the M6, M74 is fairly east until you get to about Hamilton.

Re: UK Trip Advise

Every time I went to London or Belfast it's been warm and sunny. Not too cold in the evenings but a jacket was good to have. I have been lucky with the sun though. I guess it depends on what you are used to. Watch out for crazies.

The weather is British so it'll be many things, some learn to love it. Pack for everything and enjoy the gorgeous scenery on your way up.

Expact rain in Britain, if it's any different it's a bonus.

If that is Killin, by Loch Tay, that's a beautiful part of the country. The mountain Ben Lawers is not too far from there - a good place for hillwalking. I've climbed it twice before.

More info of the general area:

Be prepared for cold and rain, though, especially in October.

Re: UK Trip Advise

Well rain certainly as for cold, it might be on the cool side but I wouldn't say cold. But then again I'm used to the British weather.
