Edinburgh at the Beginning of August

Much of the beginning of the month is dominated by the rainy and relatively mild days that are rather numerous. As the mornings are often misty, the beautiful days entirely sunny are rare. For this reason, one must also rely on the cloudy but dry days to enjoy the good weather.
