Scotland: Weather


  • Portree Isle of Skye, Scotland

Scotland offers a temperate maritime climate, meaning it rarely experiences extremes in weather or temperatures.  The seas have a great influence on the weather and as such, there are cooler summers, but not very cold winters.  The western side of the country is the wettest, due to the proximity to the Atlantic Ocean.  Higher areas also experience a great deal of rain.  

Spring in Scotland generally runs from March to May and is usually cool with chances of rain.  Summer is from June to August and there can be patches of hot days, but Scotland tends to have a cool summer.  Fall is from September to November and can be a mixed bag when it comes to temperatures.  Finally, winter, from November to March is usually cool and windy.  Again, Scotland faces colder temperatures than the rest of the UK.
