We're trying to plan our first trip to Scotland and first things first is for us to agree on a time. I've been told by friends that while warmer in the summer it's also much more crowded (and Edinburgh in August is packed!) So the spouse and I are thinking mid to late May or early June. What's the weather like then? And just how bad/where are the midges?
Thanks and so excited to be going
