Autumn is a beautiful time of year in Scotland as the glow of fiery shades lights the countryside. Make the most of the walking trails and golf courses during the stunning autumn colours, or explore Scotland’s cities once they’re emptied of summer tourists. September can be just as warm as the summer months (sometimes warmer!) and is often regarded as one of the best months to visit Scotland. The busy tourist season begins to die down by October and many of the rural tourist attractions shut down for the season after the half term October holidays.
Autumn in the UK officially begins on the 21st of September. Winter commences on the 21st December therefore the 3 month autumn period often offers exceptional value for money as it falls between the busy summer and Christmas periods. When in the autumn countryside visitors should study the fascinating British wildlife. Animals are busily readying themselves for the harsh winter season that lies ahead. Perhaps you will spot red squirrels preparing for hibernation. Autumn also promises an element of tranquillity: Travel at this period is not shared with the masses as it is in peak tourist season, so a rejuvenating break is very much on the cards. Book an autumn break in the UK for an unforgettable holiday.
Enjoy the autumnal shades of Scotland’s beautiful landscapes during the autumn months with some hill walking.
Autumn is also the perfect time to have a golfing holiday and discover some of Scotland’s fantastic golf courses. Or why not plan a fishing holiday in Scotland and enjoy the autumn scenery from the lochs and rivers? September is also the season of deer stalking in Scotland.
