Scotland has a distinct culture with the UK, differentiated by the highland bagpipes, pipe bands, the distinctive tartans worn by the highland clans and of course its weather.

The weather in the whole of the UK is classed as coastal climate, which means the weather is mixed. The weather is part of what makes Scotland such a beautiful place in the UK to visit, with its ever changing cloud patterns and light levels on the many fresh water lochs (lakes) and magnificent rugged mountains. It really has to be seen to be believed.
