Can be walked all year in good weather, it is recommended to visit it early in the morning since it is maybe the only time you will not meet a large number of tourists heading to the place
Great winter hike. Easy enough to try winter equipment and nowhere near as busy as it is during summer month
Can be walked all year in good weather. But every season is different:
Mid-April to May: Good chance of dry weather. However, Scotland’s weather is unpredictable. For hikers May is often one of the best months: Warm enough, longer daylight, lush and green landscape, wildflowers bloom, less tourists.
June to August: Long, sunny days, warmest time. However, it’s peak season: Most tourists and highest accommodation prices. Annoying midges are at their worst.
September to October: Less busy and midges start to disappear as well. Temperatures in September are between 10 and 16°C in and between 6 and 12°C in October. Idyllic landscape with beautiful foliage. Great time for hiking.
November to March: It can get very cold and days are short. Guesthouses are often closed.
Year-round, each season provides a different view of their expansive 2,500 wooded acres. Mid-week will give you less busy trails and an easier time grabbing a bite or dinner at the lodge
