WEATHER IN SCOTLAND

The Weather in Scotland can be unpredictable and, if we let the weather dictate our plans, we may never leave the house. However, with a bit of forwarding planning, the weather should not have a negative impact on your tour. After all, you don’t come to Scotland for the weather…

The exact weather and temperature during your tour are almost impossible to predict. However, there are a couple of things that will help with planning. The first thing to do is to check out the average weather conditions for the time of year you will be visiting. The best place to start is the trusty BBC Website. Another good resource is the UK Met Office.

No matter what time of year you visit, we suggest sticking to the following basic rules with regard to the weather:

  1. Always have a waterproof jacket.
  2. Umbrellas are fine on calm days, but it does get pretty windy in Scotland (especially in the Highlands and Islands).
  3. Bring clothes that can be layered up if it is cold and then taken off if it is warm.
  4. Never trust the weather forecast!
