  • What is the best time of year...

    to visit the Highlands of Scotland. I want to visit at the best time. I enjoy cooler weather. Thanks.

    In Scotland you can get wind and rain at anytime of the year and when it isn't raining visitors to the highlands have to deal with swarms of biting insects called midges that are present throughout the summer. In my experience however early September is a good time to visit. It isn't excessively hot as it is at the height of summer.

      Depends what you want to see/do as well! Many of the castles are closed out of season. If you are interested in the arts, then August is best as the Edinburgh Festival(s) take place then.

        Hi Ross and welcome to Scotland.com.

        I do suggest that you look through the Travel Forum and get an idea of what places
        are like and then ask specific questions on the areas you intend to visit.

        The Highlands cover an area that can have various different weather patterns at one moment in time.

          Thank you all. I am thinking of travelling to Rosshire, the area from where my kin came from. Thanks again for your time. I'll check out the travel forum...as Ms. Babz suggested.

            Now you know the area you could be going to it will be easier for others to advise you.

            By the way please don't call me Ms

            Babz will do nicely
            Thanks

              Sorry Babz, I'll remember that. Tough to kick the upbringing of Yes, sir...No, sir...Yes, mam...and No, mam, etc. My appologies.
