Coping With The Weather In Scotland While On Vacation There - Cell Culture Flask _____________________________________________________________________________________ By David - http://alkalisci.com/tissue-culture-products/cell-tissue-culture-flasks.html There's no doubt that Scotland is a stunningly beautiful country with its majestic mountains, serene lochs and ancient castles. It's a wonderful place to visit on vacation and can be the experience of a lifetime. Try taking in those breathtaking views with a nice glass of malt whisky in hand for the full sensory experience. But neither is there any doubt that the Scottish weather can be erratic, to say the least: one moment brilliant sunshine, torrential downpour and/or howling gale the next.So what do you need to know about Scotland's weather before you travel there? And how do you pack light but sensible for a vacation in Scotland, UK? What Is Cell Culture Flask For a small country (you can drive across it in about five hours!) Scotland has very diverse weather regions. The Atlantic-facing west coast tends to be wetter and windier than the North-sea-facing east coast. The north-west of the country, particularly the Western Isles such as Lewis and Harris, can get pretty stormy in the winter months - often with winds gusting at 70 or 80 mph. This also applies to the Northern Isles of Shetland and Orkney. The east of Scotland, by contrast, tends to get more settled weather during the winter but is colder and so more prone to snowfall. The capital city, Edinburgh, being located to the south-east of the country, tends to get some of the warmer summer weather.
Most vacation travellers will visit Scotland during the summer months. The good news is that the summer weather is a little more predictable, although still very diverse. Temperatures don't tend to get
very high but the sun can feel quite 'direct' and it's easy to get sunburned without realising how much sun-exposure you are getting while walking along in the hills, cooled by a nice breeze. If you are out walking in the hills, say in the mountainous Highlands of Scotland, remember that those mountains mean that rain can come in very quickly, even on the brightest of days. It's always a good idea to pack a lightweight waterproof and another layer of clothing, even if out for a short stroll. And don't forget sensible walking footwear if you are attempting anything beyond the briefest of walks.
You will have other challenges if you are backpacking or camping in the north-west Highlands of Scotland in the summer. Don't forget about the midges: those biting insects that swarm out of damp ground and give you lots of nasty, itchy little bites. Midges breed in damp ground so, unfortunately, you'll tend to come across them in most camping areas of the north-west Highlands unless there has been a good, long spell of dry weather. Even then they will tend to congregate around places you would like to camp, such as beside lochs and rivers. There are many other areas in Scotland to visit so I have only outlined some of the items to take for the 'harsher' environments you might come across. A lot of the same information will apply, though, if you are venturing outside of the cities and into the beautiful Scottish countryside. Scots are very friendly people but the do tend to take a dim view of those who come to their country ill-equipped for the weather. Perthshire, for example, has many beautiful woodland areas and walks. Perthshire, being positioned fairly centrally, doesn't tend to get extreme weather and it not as mountainous as the northwest Highlands but it still makes sense to plan before taking off on a two-hour forest walk.
