When To Go

Being a relatively small country it is surprising how much the climate can change from one region to another and add to that how unpredictable it can be, you will often experience all four seasons in one day!

Summer (June-August) – These are normally the warmest months in Scotland and due to the high latitude the summer days are long with often extended twilight. The northern islands normally enjoy about four hours more daylight at midsummer than London. Average maximum temperatures range from 15 – 17 degrees Celsius.

Autumn (September-November) – Travelling to Scotland during the autumn months is a colourful experience as the trees change to eye-catching and vibrant autumnal colours. A great time for photography and woodland walks. Average maximum temperatures range from 8 – 14 degrees Celsius

Winter (December-February) – Temperatures drop considerably to an average maximum temperatures of 5 degrees Celsius and considerably lower in the highlands. Snow falls for much of this period making it the perfect time for a winter sports break. It also the best time to experience Scotland’s designated dark sky areas and take part in astronomy.

Spring (March-May) – One of our favourite time’s to visit. Flowers are in full bloom and the wildlife is starting to stir following the cold winter months. Average maximum temperatures range from 7 – 13 degrees Celsius and you may experience a shower or two but hotel rates are generally cheaper.
