Scottish Highlands Weather

The Scottish Highlands is known for its diverse weather changes through the seasons, although the weather in Scotland does not differ that much from England, Scotland is a bit more cloudy.
The average sunshine hours are at their maximum in May and June and the least in December and January.  Because of the high latitude the winter days are very short but are compensated with only 5 hours  of almost darkness in the long summer days. Rainfall is another key element of Scottish weather.


The winds favourite direction is from the south-west and strong winds occur more often and are the strongest in the Western Isles and the north-west coast with January and
February being the coldest months with an average of around 5 to 7 °C where the summer months have an average of about 19 Degrees centigrade.
The annual mean temperature on Ben Nevis (1344m) is -0.3C and Snowfall occurs on less than 20 days near the west-coast to more than 100 days in the Cairngorm Mountains mainly in the months December to March.
