Titanium Goat bivy bag with a waterproof bottom on a polycro groundsheet. Inside the bivy bag is a full-size Gossamer gear nightlight pad that I have cut to shape to fit the bivy bag. Then there's a GoLite Quilt and a silk sleeping bag liner. Turns out, all of this is pretty warm and I wasn't wearing everything I could have worn. I am considering to leave the silk liner behind, but it is an easy way to keep the bag cleaner, so I guess I'll bring it anyway. Humidity was not an issue, neither inside the bivy bag, not is there much of a condensation build-up in the tarp. Mind you, there was some, so in a tent I think it would have been quite a bit that night. Either way, it all worked fine and I'm confident this will work just fine in Scotland too.

I'm still not quite finished with the detailed planning of the second half of my route. A matter of days only, I hope ... well, I need to book my flight, hotels etc. rather sooner than later, so I should get on with it. Anyhow, in the mean time, some nice music with some possibly hiking related titles :-)
Happy week to everyone!
