Isle of Skye whisky 3

I have been sorting out my gear for my wee trip to the North West tomorrow I am up in Elphin all being well on the North West of Scotland. Why does it take so long to sort gear, what to take, what not?  It is about an hour North  from Ullapool but even though the weather looks variable (awful)I will still go I need a a break and this area is a joy to be in whatever the weather.  I am hoping to meet up with a few friends and enjoy the solitude of this incredible place.

North West Scotland = Assynt,

This frieze of mountains, filed
on the blue air — Stac Polly,
Cul Beag, Cul Mor, Suilven,
Canisp — a frieze and
a litany.

When I was out on Sunday my feet were wet a bit when I got back. All  my gaiters all are now too tight even the large size, (my huge thick legs and calves?) anyone recommend me  something?
