Autumn and Winter in Scotland

Scotland is stunningly beautiful at all times of the year, and although there may be less daylight in the autumn and winter, the skies are often blue and there are a huge variety of outdoor activities to get involved in.  Walking, mountain climbing, cycling and snowsports are all on offer, but if outdoor activities are not your thing, enjoy the vibrant life in our cities with great entertainment, excellent shopping and lots of events. The darker nights are ideal for a cosy get together with family and friends over a meal or a drink.
