Weather in Scotland
Contrary to popular belief it doesn't rain all the time in Scotland!
In fact the climate is remarkably good - although changeable might
perhaps sum it up best. If it is raining where you are, then you can
usually drive a short way and find glorious sunshine. Hailstones are
not unknown in June, but the summers are usually sunny - May and
September are also excellent months to visit Scotland with often the
best weather of the year then.
There are regional variations in Scottish weather. The east coast of
Scotland is much drier then the west coast: in fact Fife boasts that it
is the driest part of Scotland. The west coast is wetter, but it is
warmed by the Gulf Stream so when it is sunny it can be very hot.
Scottish people do talk about the weather a lot (as do all British
people!) - everyone will have an opinion as to whether it is about to
snow or a heat-wave is on the way.
