When to visit Scotland
Scotland is a lovely place that is worth visiting at any time of the year, but the best seasons depend on your preferences and personal interests.

During these months, the days are long and sunlight can last up to 18 hours a day, offering you a great opportunity to discover the natural beauty and Scottish cities.
