Scotland has an oceanic climate without extremes, but the weather depends on the region. West coast is usually rainy and foggy while the east coast has a more continental climate and can remain completely dry. August is usually the rainiest summer month. Thunderstorms are possible throughout the summer.

June, July and August are the warmest months in Scotland, but average temperatures are moderate, around 17 °C. Scotland's highlands enjoy almost endless summer days. In the northern areas, there are four hours more daylight than in London.
