If you’re choosing when to visit the UK based on its weather, be warned – it’s famously unpredictable and can vary considerably across the country.

However, the summer months of June, July and August are usually the warmest in the UK, with temperatures often reaching 24°C and above. Just be sure to take a raincoat along with your sunscreen.

Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November) can bring both sunshine, and rainy spells. Winter (December to February) can get cold and snowy, especially outside the towns and cities.

Lose yourself among Scotland’s lochs

Loch Ness may be the most famous – not least thanks to a certain mythical monster – but there are more than 30,000 lochs to explore in Scotland.

Set against stunning backdrops of hillsides and emerald green forests, these lakes have an almost mystical air. It’s no surprise that they were used as settings for the Harry Potter films.

You can build an entire holiday around some of the largest lochs, such as Loch Lomond. Try your hand at water sports, hit the cycle paths, take a boat trip to seal-inhabited islands or simply enjoy a walk in the fresh Highland air.
