Why Choose Scotland?
Situated within vibrant Europe, Scotland is a progressive nation built on dynamism, creativity and the fabulous warmth of its people.
Come rain or shine, we promise your spirits will never be dampened by the weather in Scotland.
Scotland’s reputation when it comes to the weather is well-known, and slightly unfair. The weather in Scotland actually tends to be quite moderate and changeable, but is rarely extreme. You might experience ‘four seasons in one day’, but travel 20-30 minutes in any direction and the weather is generally completely different! There’s no bad time of year to visit Scotland, with plenty to see and do regardless of the elements. After all, as the old saying goes, ‘there is no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothes’!
Safety & Inclusivity
Whether you live and work here or are just visiting, making sure you feel safe and welcome is very important to us. After all, there’s a reason we have such a great reputation for being warm and friendly to everyone!
Scotland is famous throughout the world for its incredible warmth and unbeatable hospitality. Whether it’s the many thousands who choose to live here permanently or the more than 2.5 million visitors who travel to Scotland every year, everyone speaks of the genuine friendliness of the Scottish people.
