When Should I Visit Scotland?

Scotland is a great place to visit at any time of year. The most popular tourist season July and August, but in fact, March and April can have wonderful weather – and offer the advantage of no midgets! September and October are often great outdoor months too.

Throughout April – September, every week there are a number of local events for tourists and locals alike to enjoy Scottish culture.

Perthshire, Scotland has just been voted the friendliest place on Earth, which makes it a superb place to come on an English language holiday!
