I am looking forward to seeing Edinburgh Castle in person!

I am from South Florida and we don't get 4 seasons in on year We get hot and humid, not so hot and humid, I get to wear long sleeves this morning and don't worry it will stop raining in 20 minutes. I'd really like to know about what temperatures those of us going in August can expect? Thanks!

Well nothing above 22 degrees Celsius! Which I think is about 70 Fahrenheit ?one day it coul be 70 then the next 50! We have had terrible weather so far this year. I love florida rain because it only lasts 20 mins we have rain that can last a week! So what you really want is fair weather when your here

Personally I'd bring all the winter clothes you can find or buy some over here. Rain wear is a must . The weather was awful last summer and we're expecting snow again in May!

Yes, can I please put in an order for NO RAIN during June Looking forward to Edinburgh but especially the Highlands. And for those in Scotland, are these 'midge' things I have been reading about bothersome in June?

Midges are lethal! Bit like Mozzies. When my daughter went to school camp, we recommended Avon So soft spray

Had a look on the US version and you seem to be able to get something similar. It definitely stopped her getting any bites. Will need to order some for my son in the Summer when he goes.

Yes midges are very annoying little creatures! As previously mentioned Avon skin so soft works great for keeping them away

Can't believe we are almost at the 3-month mark for the Aug. 4 departure. I booked a private tour of St. Andrews and the fishing villages of Fife for one of our pre-days. Getting so excited.

We started doing the happy dance once we hit double digits to departure Oooh! That sounds pretty cool! I'm looking forward to hearing about your pre trip tour since we are on the same departure date.

I knew it was close when I received my final payment reminder email--ugh. Once I get over the pain of "d-day," I'm sure my excitement will start ramping up, LOL. We also booked a private tour of Fife/St. Andrews/Scone, but for after the tour.

Can I ask who you guys are doing the private tours with? We are on the fence about just renting a car to go out there or finding a tour for a day trip to the area.
