Visiting Scotland

Useful information for planning your deer stalking trip to Scotland

You can find a range of useful guidebooks which will help your trip planning in our bookstore. It's also worth visiting www.mustdoscotland.com for tips on visiting Scotland and a great selection of guidebooks and other books about Scotland.

Scotland is a wonderful country to visit and is well set up for tourism, with a wide range of accommodation, a good transport infrastructure and lots of information points. There are also many tour companies offering everything from walking and hiking holidays to castle tours, from golf tours to ghost or even garden tours.

The stalking seasons for red deer stags and roe deer bucks coincides with summer and autumn (fall) in Scotland. Consequently, it is a good time to visit. The stalking season for red deer hinds and roe deer doe takes place over late autumn and winter. This is a far quieter time in Scotland, as the weather can be cold, wet and windy. However, when the weather is fine the scenery is magnificent and the winter welcome from the locals always warms the heart. It's definitely worth considering coming stalking in Scotland in winter if you are not after a trophy stag or buck.


The Weather in Scotland

With regards to the weather, May and June are the driest and sunniest months and a recommended time to visit Scotland, with normal daytime temperatures of 15-18C. The northerly latitude also means that Scotland enjoys 4 hours more daylight than London, with the most northerly regions barely getting dark during the weeks around midsummer.

July and August are the warmest months with normal daytime temperatures of 18-22C. This is a popular time to visit Scotland but our trips are based in genuine wilderness areas far from the crowds. Scotland's famous purple heather is at its best in late August, especially in areas such as the Cairngorms. Late summer brings generally settled weather as we pass into September and October, with normal daytime temperatures of 14-18C. Autumnal colours begin to emerge with birch and rowan trees throwing up particularly bright colours which complement the reddish hue of the hillsides.

Of course, Scotland is known for its rain but its not as bad you may have heard! It is worth noting, however, that heavy rain and strong winds can be experienced at any time of year, so you must always be suitably dressed and equipped when you come deer stalking in Scotland. The weather is all part of the experience, though, and if you've had a wet day you can laugh about it later while sharing stories, whisky in hand, round a roaring log fire back at the lodge.
