What are the best times of year to visit Scotland?

Scotland makes for a fantastic holiday destination any time of year. However, if you're planning a beach break, resorts like Ayr really come alive during the summer. Depending on where in Scotland you're visiting, temperatures can reach average highs of around 19 degrees during July and August, making these months the warmest time of year to spend your holiday.

If you're visiting during autumn, winter or spring you'll be able to enjoy quiet beach walks and experience the beauty of The Highlands as the landscape colours change throughout the seasons. Head to our local attractions page to discover more about things to do in Scotland.
