Haha! Brilliant!. I worked the prints in Glasgow in the mid-70s when, depending on area, the standard team was reporter, photographer and minder. Sometimes, two minders . . .

If you are going to stray into the countryside then, as well as the 24 - 105 and perhaps the 10-22, I strongly recommend insect repellant. The midges are very friendly and can give you some nasty bites!

Actually, north east Scotland is one of the drier areas of the country, shielded as it is by the Grampians. West coast - mild and wet; east coast - colder, drier. And, hey, there are always decent weather forecasts on BBC Radio Scotland.

I would just do what we Yorkshiremen do..
Get up
LOOK OUT OF THE WINDOW.
:D
the rain is a problem but here in Gods County we like it!

And just like in Yorkshire, when you look out and can't see the hills, it's raining.

If you CAN see the hills, it's going to rain...

Ach, cameras and lenses are tougher and more impervious than commonly feared. Like humans - as my scarily crusty old mother used to observe : your skin is the best waterproof you've got . . .

OP - if you've got the space, by all means bring the longer glass. But, as others point out, nice to have but it'll be rarely used.

I am leaving on Wednesday to Scotland, and I am taking my Case Logic SLRC-202 bag that holds 3 medium sized zoom lens (one in each side pouch, and one on my 7D) plus a small prime. I am going to birng these two for sure:

Tokina 11-16mm (scenery and inside castles)
Sigma 30mm (for inside low light shots)

I am torn on the last two between these choices:

1) Sigma 17-50mm OS (nice walk around, light, fairly fast, could also be used inside)
2) Canon 15-85mm (general walk around with nice range)
3) Canon 24-105mm (general walk around with a little more tele since I already have the wide covered)
4) Sigma 50-150mm (nice sized lens, fast with decent range)

(1)+(4) go well together and cover a nice complete range, but I am wondering if I will always be wishing the other lens was on. (2) has a great range, but then I don't know which other lens to bring with it since there would be lots of overlap. (3) has a great range too, but same issue as (2)

Any opinions would be appreciated!

I would go with #1 & #4 as you suggest that will cover a reasonable range. However there is always the shot that needs more reach, especially in the wilds, so add a 2x if you have one.
Then stay off the Whisky or it wont matter what lens you use for your blurred photos


Most Canons currently - 1D(Mks 2&3&4), 7D gripped 50D gripped x2, 40Dgripped x2, 30Dgripped, 20D gripped, 350 gripped, 300. with L lenses

I think the Klepper has already schlepped - but I wouldn't go anywhere without my 70-200 (yeh - I know it not on the list!) as in old cities like Edinburgh, there are details and points of interest that warrant a medium tele and also, well - all the wide shots have been done. It's a bit of a truism though that the lens you need is always the one you haven't got...
