Have you considered visiting Scotland in November?
Are you wondering when is the best time to visit Scotland. Some attractions might be closed but Scotland has so much to offer there is still too much to do that it will still leave you needing to return.
And the Scottish countryside is wide open to visitors. This part of Scotland is one of the most densely forested areas of the UK so we offer superb Autumn Colours. Weather in Scotland can be very localised but here on the Moray Firth coast we are one of the drier areas.
This means if you are looking for some relaxed sightseeing – think abandoned Castles like Duffus Castle or Spynie Palace. Or historic Battlegrounds like Culloden without the crowds. Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle are open all year, whisky distilleries may have that special tour you have always wanted to do. Tour the countryside either on foot or by car and enjoy Scotland’s scenery at its’ best.
Visit Scotland in November
A perfect time for relaxing If you have had a busy Summer and before the Christmas season starts then grab some downtime. Hike an easily accessible Corbett such as Ben Rinnes, take a beach stroll or a River ramble and find the perfect spot of lunch. Scotland is famous for its’ food and Scottish soups such as Cullen Skink should not be missed. And because we are so proud of all our local produce you will find a good choice of soups, stews, tarts and desserts that you may not find elsewhere.
Talking of Christmas, Scotland offers exceptional quality shopping for that exclusive gift that all be done without the normal rush. Visit at the end of November and you can visit the Annual Cashmere Sale at Johnstons of Elgin – you just might want to keep these gifts for yourself.
Need some help finding other gifts then we have lots of choice and we can help you look for that something special.
So, don’t overlook Scotland in November – it is one of my favourite times of the year. With less rainfall than other parts of Scotland and stunning foliage what’s not to like. And as we say in Scotland if you don’t like the weather, wait ten minutes and it will change.
