Scotland in January-March

Hi all.  I'm a total beginner and will possibly be heading to Scotland to visit family sometime between January 2006 and March.  Are there some good places to learn? Also what wetsuit would be required for that time of year? I have a 4/3mm but dont know if that would be warm enough for the water there.  Thanks!

Get a 5mm wetsuit if you can, or you will freeze your balls off!!

Thanks for the info. I'm from Canada, so used to the cold..hell frozen over where I live in the winter, but definately will think about a 5mm (even though girls dont have balls to freeze off...lol). I have to check with some of my cousins over there to see if there is anywhere they go as well.
Thanks for the help!

Where in Scotland you gonna be? If your on the east coast, head for Montrose and Aberdeen, north youv'e got Thurso. I'm a jock livin in Wales and recently went to Orkney for a few days surf. Awsome waves and empty line ups. Def woth an adventure. Would really recco a 5/3 for Scotland, actually all Uk in winter full hood and gloves too.. Have fun on your hunt

If I end up going (fingers crossed!), will end up in either Paisley or Glasgow, probably both as I have family in both places. Good to know that a warmer suit is required. Will definately keep that in mind. Thanks for the info!

Looking for surf spots in Scotland ?
