Never Take the Sun for Granted!

Dornoch, Scotland lies at almost 58 degrees N latitude, the same latitude as Juneau, Alaska. Anybody have any opinions on the best thermal underwear to buy? Here's a satelite image of Dornoch, zoom out a bit if you'd like, to see just how far North we'll be. Surprisingly, although cold, windy, and rainy, the weather is milder than you would imagine. They rarely have snow, and because of the seemingly constant rain, it's green year-round. When we were there in November, the grass was bright green and roses were in full bloom. What I'm looking forward to the least is the lack of sunshine. Apparently Seasonal Affective Disorder (or, ironically enough, SAD) is very common in Scotland. This is definitely on my "must buy" list before we leave.
