Forget the tropics – spring break belongs to Scotland. While the country is beautiful year-round, springtime is one of the loveliest seasons during which to visit. Below are our top 3 reasons why you should consider choosing Little’s to plan a chauffeur driven tour in Scotland this spring.
May is World Whisky Month
1: Springtime Festivals
There are a host of events that bring life to Scotland after the cold winter. May is World Whisky Month, coordinating with the Highland Whisky Festival that begins 16 May. If you’re more of a gin drinker, the Scottish Gin Festival is on from 31 May. For more family-friendly fun, Midlothian Heritage Week runs 1-7 May, featuring crafts, markets, and exhibitions showcasing Midlothian history.
Perfect weather for photography
2: The Weather
It’s no secret that Scotland’s weather is unpredictable. The months of April to June, however, see the most sunshine on average with temperatures between 7˚ and 13˚C (45˚ to 55˚F). The lighting at this time of year is perfect for photographers, with clear skies providing beautiful sunrises and sunsets.
The Highland Games play host to all types of events – such as tug o’ war
3: Highland Games
There is perhaps no bigger celebration of Scottish Celtic culture than the Highland Games. The games are celebrated worldwide during the spring and summer months. The Gordon Castle Highland Games and Country Fair is celebrated on 19 May this year, where you can watch fire breathers, stunt riders, and dancers while eating traditional Scottish foods. We recommend the haggis!
