Summer weather in Scotland, July, August and September
In Scotland in July you have 17 hours of daylight longer than any other part of Great Britain- the curvature of the earth flattening out At the poles causes this effect. Actually, it never gets truly dark with a clear sky at this time of year – we can take photographs of Kentallen Bay at midnight. (Actual photo bottom right of the page)
The West Coast of Scotland is a truly magical place
Our holiday cottage near Glencoe has a local climate of its own which is drier than Glencoe, on the other side of the hill, has more sunshine than the Moor of Rannoch, and is much warmer than Perthshire. The cottage itself gets very few midges in Summer, and in Winter we rarely get deep snow. The prevailing South-Westerlies dump the rain and snow over the hills behind us and the North Atlantic Drift keeps us warm.
