When to visit Edinburgh

There is one time that is right to visit Edinburgh and that is anytime. Each season in Edinburgh has its own unique appeal. However, Edinburgh becomes the most favoured spot for travellers during June and August. 

Summertime’s average temperatures range between 50 and 65 degrees Fahrenheit, making it the most comfortable time to visit weather-wise. Plus, because of the country’s high latitude, summer days are long. But the fine weather and compilation of festivals also make it the most popular time to travel. If you plan on coming, book your hotel months in advance and expect crowds left and right.  

Edinburgh experiences a brief autumn when it comes to temperatures; by the end of October, you’ll need a heavy winter jacket as temperatures dip to the low 40s.
