Scotland weather

The climate of Scotland is temperate and tends to be very changeable, but not normally extreme. It is warmed by the Gulf Stream from the Atlantic, and given its northerly latitude it is warmer than areas on similar latitudes. Even though most of the country has a temperate climate, the Northern islands and Highlands experience a type of weather closeto the climate of the Faroe Islands or Southern Norway.

Statistically, the best weather is in May, June and September; July and August are usually warm, but may be wet too. In summer, daylight hours are long; the midsummer sun sets around 11pm in the Shetland Islands and even evenings seem to last forever in June and July.
