I don't think a day goes by without us Scots moaning about how unreliable the weather forecasts are, because it is so changeable it never seems be correct. It's therefore something you'll need consider when you planning your Scottish Vacation in Perthshire.
Generally, Scotland is cool and damp and often cloudy, but daily weather is unpredictable and extremely variable. January and February are by far the coldest months, with the daily temperatures averaging 41°F to 45°F (5°C to 7°C), while during summer the average temperatures of 66°F (19°C) during its warmest months of July and August.
At most times of the year it is perfectly possible to have glorious sunshine, chilling cold, together with wind, rain and even snow - four seasons all in the one day! I've even seen snow in June, and November can be filled with glorious sunshine but quite chilly.
Perthshire weather on average is cooler than that of England. Also the further north of Scotland you go, the cooler it is.
Our northern latitude means we have short days in the winter (when you it's only beginning to get light at 8am and then is dark again by 4pm) but we also have wonderfully long days in the summer. At the end of June, for example, there is only about 3 hours when it is dark.
I hope this hasn't put you off visiting us here in Perthshire. After all there is more to a vacations than the weather, although it does help if it's warm and sunny. I have to admit it is not a hot climate, or even warm sometimes! So if you are coming from a much warmer part of the world you do need some warm clothing. If you don't want to bring them with you there are plenty of outlets to purchase some cashmere cardigans and even a coat to keep you warm at reasonable prices. So if you are coming to visit us - please be prepared!
