Scotland can be visited all year round, though the possibilities change with the seasons. The climate is quite moderate and very changeable throughout the year. The most popular months to visit would be mid April til mid October as the temperatures are fairly mild, the days are long and it is possible to enjoy most outdoor activities. Snowfall is quite common between November and April and depending on where you travel, you might encounter some road closures, Scotland provides excellent value for skiing and snow-boarding and to snuggle up with a single malt at the fireplace in an ancient castle is an unforgettable experience.


Whatever the season and no matter what you say about Scottish weather, you are bound to be wrong. So it is easiest (and safest) to prepare for all seasons, even if you are traveling in August. A windproof rain jacket, comfortable, waterproof walking shoes and lost of layers should be on your list,  and whenever and wherever you may go, bring an umbrella.


Scotland's five airports - Glasgow, Prestwick, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Inverness - are all served by international flights from various airports in Europe. On top of that Glasgow Intl and Edinburgh offer the best access from overseas and are being served by numerous international airlines and all airports offer good connections to the main European hubs.
