What should I pack when visiting Glasgow?

Pack for unpredictable weather – a waterproof jacket and layers are musts. Don't forget chargers for devices, and maybe a travel adapter. If you're staying at a park like Red Deer Village Holiday Park, bring comfy outdoor gear for exploring and any specific equipment for activities you've planned.
