Where should you go in Scotland in october when it comes to the weather?

Remember:
The climate in Scotland in october is bad across the board.

With temperatures ranging from 6° C to 12° C, cold temperatures are spreading throughout Scotland. Since this period is one of the wettest months of the year, it can be deduced that the climate throughout October in Scotland is far from perfect. However, each locality has its particularity - because of its geographical configuration, which is why the weather conditions of each place differ slightly from one another.

The Eastern Coast of Scotland throughout October

The eastern coast of Scotland takes advantage of the relative rarity of the rains. However the sun has difficulty reigning as master due to the cloudy formations that often cover the sky. As a result, the weather in Scotland throughout October is expected to be cloudy. This is true except in Edinburgh where heavy clouds often end up turning into heavy showers.

The Western Coast of Scotland throughout October

Since the western coast is most exposed to the influence of the Atlantic sea currents, rainfall is more abundant. Thus, from Skye to Oban, the rainy days dominate the weather throughout October in Scotland. Rain showers can occur at any time of the day, so umbrellas and waterproof clothing must remain within reach.

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

The city of Glasgow and its surroundings are more watered compared to other Scottish towns. This does not help the quality of the weather. In addition to the already cool temperatures, more frequent rainfall is expected. The beautiful sunny days are indeed counted on the fingers of one hand.
