Best Time to Travel to Edinburgh

Peak Season:

The peak time for tourism in Edinburgh is during Scotland’s summer season, from June through September. It’s this time of year when the weather is warmest and temperatures reach around 19 degrees Celsius. The sun can stay out until as late as 11 p.m. in the early part of this season, but rainfall is also more frequent during this time, so be sure to bring an umbrella. Along with the mercury, room rates tend to rise during these months. You can save quite a bit by booking early, though, so keep that in mind when planning your holiday.

Shoulder Season:

Edinburgh enjoys two shoulder seasons each year, when you’ll encounter less crowds and enjoy more-affordable rates on rooms. The first shoulder is from February through May, and the second falls in October and November. Tourism in these months isn’t as heavy as it is the summer, but the weather is still nice enough to experience many of Edinburgh’s best attractions.

Off Season:

The best time to find cheap flights to Edinburgh is during the off season from November to March. This is when you’re most likely to get the best room rates in nearby hotels, though some establishments and attractions tend to shut down completely in these months. This is, however, a great time to enjoy some action on the nearby slopes, so if skiing and snowboarding are up your alley, this might be the best season to visit Edinburgh.
