Seasons
When the sun shines in Scotland, it is the best place in the world to be! And although the Scottish climate is renowned for its variability, it is not nearly as rainy as you may think. Even if you get caught in the rain, you will see waterfalls and rivers come to life, and the mountains take on an atmospheric appearance which can be very dramatic.

Spring
During spring and early summer, meadows of wild flowers bring an abundance of colors to the landscape and it is a great time to experience Scotland’s rich wildlife and birdlife. May and June are the driest and sunniest months and a recommended time to visit Scotland. The northerly latitude also means that Scotland enjoys 4 hours more daylight than London, with the most northerly regions barely getting dark during the weeks around midsummer.

Summer
July & August are the warmest months. This is a popular time to visit Scotland but our trips are based in genuine wilderness areas far from the crowds. Scotland’s famous purple heather is at its best in late August.

Autumn
Late summer brings generally settled weather as we pass into September and October. Autumnal colors begin to emerge with birch and rowan trees throwing up particularly bright colors which complement the reddish hue of the hillsides, roamed by well-camouflaged red deer.
