When is the best time to visit Scotland?

The most popular times of year to travel to Scotland are May through September. If you love being around lots of other people and attending festivals, Edinburgh has a number of them occurring in August. August is also when you can see the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo. If crowds aren’t your thing, late April into May and late September into October would be our suggestion. Be prepared for winter closures, however, as the weather (particularly in the north) closes down some of the places you may want to visit. It’s not uncommon to see snow in the winter, especially in the Scottish Highlands.

Language and People

English is the main language spoken, but it wouldn’t be uncommon to hear Gaelic or Scots spoken, languages that date back centuries. The Scots are wonderful people who are typically very proud of being Scottish (make sure you don’t call them English). They have a long and sometimes turbulent history which they, quite rightly, honor. Sometimes, the Scottish accent can be quite strong (you may wish you had subtitles during a conversation), particularly in cities such as Glasgow.

A cup of tea or a wee dram (or two) are welcome accompaniments to any conversation with a Scot and odds are, the conversation will be a fascinating one.
