When to Visit Scotland
Though Scotland often has drizzly weather and a dreary atmosphere, when the sun does come out to play the sights are truly remarkable. Picture enchanting sunrises coming up over the hills or a magical sunset behind the charming towns.
For your best chance at slightly warmer weather, book your trip for April to August, as the spring-summer seasons tend to average tops of 17ºC–28ºC. The best part is that April is one of the driest months of the year for Scotland, meaning that you won’t feel bogged down by the drizzle. Though the summer months tend to be the peak travel season, if you want a quieter time in this verdant country then you should plan your travel for spring or autumn.
