Best time to visit Scotland
What about the best time to visit Scotland? Weather forecasts here usually don’t predict sunshine and soaring temperatures all year round, that much is true. However, it would be unfair to say that the Scottish weather is any worse than the rest of the UK for holidays spent glamping. Scotland has a very regional climate, where temperatures and rain precipitation fluctuates massively from one region to another. If you’re planning to visit top attractions in Scotland like Edinburgh Castle, our advice would be to come in the summer months when temperatures range from 15°- 17°C (60° - 65°F). One of the most popular Edinburgh attractions is, of course, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival which takes place every year in August when temperatures generally range from lows of 9°C and highs of 18°C (50°- 65 °F). Should you be interested in staying during the winter in a luxurious highland cottage, Scotland will experience a maximum temperature of 5°C (40°F). However, bear in mind that during the winter months of December, January, and February, snowboarding and skiing in Scotland will be at its peak and enthusiasts will be able to visit the best ski resorts in UK.
