The weather in Argyll is unpredictable (as it seems to be almost everywhere these days). It tends to be milder and wetter than the East of Scotland, with the Gulf Stream running down the coast. We can have wonderful days at any time of year, when it’s a joy to be outside, and we can have disappointing weather at any time of year.
I’m often asked which month is the best one to visit and I honestly can’t give an answer – obviously the temperatures are higher in the late spring, the summer and early autumn but I’ve had some of my best walking in the winter months and the views can be stunning at that time of year.
August is the busiest time of year and, although I would avoid August if possible, Argyll and its roads are never over populated in comparison to less rural areas.
My best advice is to come equipped for all weathers, and include wet weather gear and good waterproof footwear in your packing.
