Northern Scotland and the Shetland Islands throughout October

Climatic conditions in northern Scotland have the same characteristics as those on the west coast. Not only are temperatures cool but rains can occur at any time of the day. The only difference is the frequency of showers and the humidity. The north of the country is less watered and consequently, the sunny days are more numerous.

Southern Scotland throughout October
