When to visit Scotland

High season – July – August
Mid season – May – June & September
Low season – October – April

The best time to visit Scotland is between May and September, when the weather is fine. The busiest time to visit is August, when the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Military Tattoo take place. Unless you are into skiing the winter months around the Highlands are very cold and the days short, but Edinburgh and Glasgow are still worth visiting during this time.
