    Definitely an umbrella! And some wellington boots!

    I have had to make a few assumption to answer your question.
    That you are going during the summer months.
    That you have a car to carry your luggage.
    That you are staying in accomodation and not camping.

    You will need a day rucksack, one that holds around 25/30 litres.
    Walking boots that are well worn in to save you getting blisters. I suggest 2 or 3 season walking boots in fabric material.
    3 pairs of walking socks.
    1 pair of lightweight walking trousers.
    1 pair of walking shorts incase its hot!
    A lightweight waterproof jacket and waterproof overtrousers. (hopefully these will spend all week in your rucksack, but you never know)
    3 tee shirts, ones that wick moisture away from your body. Anti-bacterial ones are even better.
    A warm top to wear over your tee shirts.
    A warm hat.
    Enough underwear for the week.
    Map or maps of the area your going to.
    A compass.
    A small first aid kit.
    A useful book of the area.
    A small flask
    A watch, telephone, small torch, and whistle for emegencies,
    Clothes to wear for when your not walking.
    Sandals to let your feet breath after walking.
    Credit card.

    Hope this helps.
