      Hi @Eba

      Have a look at our guides to Scotland in the winter. You might fancy the Cairngorms for snow or prefer a city for some Christmas markets, events and festivities.

      Hello @Eba,

      A general guide if you want the mildest weather available for your trip, is to travel the west coast of Scotland from the south upwards. It may be a bit wetter, but the reason for the milder weather is a warm current from the Atlantic, called the Gulf Stream, which runs up and along the west coast, and that is why you will see Palm Trees fairly commonly in some areas. The Kintyre Peninsula, and up to about 20 miles north of Oban benefits from this warm ocean current. Going further north and you lose the benefit as the current cools.

      Have a great trip.

      Tooma. :)
