Scotland: Climate & Weather


The main feature of the Scottish climate is its variability: The weather is generally humid, but it is rare to have an entire rainy day.

Spring is the driest season, the sunshine is stronger and the temperatures begin to warm up: This is the best time to visit the country. In the summer, days are longer, especially to the north where the sun sets later, but downpours occur more often.

In autumn the weather is very changeable and the cold sets in quickly. The winter itself is not very cold, but the sun appears only for a few hours each day in the north.
