Scottish Weather and Climate

Scotland's climate is generally cool and wet. It is influenced by the North Atlantic Drift, a warm sea current from the Caribbean, which keeps Scotland's coast ice free in winter.

The climate is oceanic, with no extreme variations or exceptional events like tornadoes, droughts or widespread floods, but the day to day weather can vary enormously and unpredictably, and is a national source of daily conversation.

Traditional Scottish Cuisine

The signature dish of Scotland is undoubtedly Haggis, and impressive though it is, Scotland's kitchens have a whole lot more to offer. Traditional Scottish cuisine is based on local produce - oats for porridge and oatcake biscuits (bannocks), salted, or smoked meat and game. Fish is a staple and the city of Aberdeen has been known for its cured fish since the 13th Century.
