Make the most of your visit to Edinburgh with some unmissable city highlights:
Weather in the UK does have quite a reputation, which is largely justified so, if you are not familiar with it, it is worth being prepared (for anything). Realistically, in late June a temperature of 15º Centigrade counts as cold and 30º counts as hot. You might hope for daytime temperatures in the low 20s. However, since we are not very far from the Atlantic Ocean and the North Sea, rain is likely, but by no means inevitable; in summer there may be thunderstorms and hail is not impossible. Sunny weather is not unheard of; it’s recently become a bit warmer, a bit drier and (perhaps) even more unpredictable.
