Question

What will the weather be like the last week of March?

Answer

In the south of the country temperatures start to rise and spring begins to emerge. Temperatures are warmer by spring, with averages of 43°F to 59°F. In the Highlands and Cairngorms, snow remains on the mountains but the lower slopes begin to melt. Many feel the best time to visit Scotland is during spring (late March to May) due to the lower crowds and lower prices. Since we'll be traveling in the low season we do stand a solid chance of getting caught in some rain. You absolutely need a packable rain jacket, travel umbrella, and waterproof boots.

Question

Will I be able to easily rent a car and drive in Scotland?

Answer

The best way to travel around Scotland is indeed with a rental car, especially if you’re traveling with a group. All with an international driving license can drive in Scotland. Please don't forget, the Scots drive on the left side of the road, with the steering wheel on the right. Second, instead of stoplights, most of the roads in Scotland run smoothly because of roundabouts. Yes, roundabouts. Those are the circle streets you may get a wee bit nervous about driving on if you’re not used to them. Third and most important – the roads in many parts of the country, including the highlands, are often small single-track roads fit for just one vehicle at a time. Every 400 meters or so, there are passing points to let oncoming traffic get through. The car closest to a passing point should be the one to yield.

Question

What foods should we look to try while we're in Scotland?

Answer

Scottish food, at its core, is all about the ingredient and Scottish foods vary by location. Though Scotland’s national dish is haggis, a savory meat pudding, the national drink is of course, whisky. Other Scottish foods to try are Scotch pie, Cullen skink, neeps and tatties, and fresh salmon! You can often find fresh hand-dived scallops, smoked salmon, aged whisky, stilton, croquettes, cheddar, dry-aged beef, duck, wild mushrooms, venison, grouse, lamb, aubergines, hand-picked herbs, and craft distilled gin. The Atlantic Ocean supplies a copious amount of amazing seafood to Scotland. Fish and chips may be a classic dish, but there is a lot more to food in Scotland these days than a fried piece of cod. Look for amazing smoked salmon, fresh oysters, langoustine, trout, scallops, and even sea urchins.

Question

You should know about the freedom to roam

Answer

Keep in mind that Monday will be our travel day, from Edinburgh to the Isle of Skye. One thing to know when you travel Scotland is that there is no trespassing. Everyone has the right to roam along the countryside, including farms. The “freedom to roam” is the public’s right to access public or privately owned land for recreation. This doesn’t include houses, gardens, or military bases, so don’t go squatting on someone’s porch, but it does allow people to enjoy the land and inland water for their well-being. The only stipulation is that you must do so responsibly and safely and stay a reasonable distance from home. https://www.outdooraccess-scotland.scot/act-and-access-code/scottish-outdoor-access-code-visitors-and-land-managers/what-scottish-outdoor-access-code
