Running in Scotland in June
Thinking of a run in Scotland in June? Visit Scotland informs us that June, July and August are normally the warmest months in Scotland, with average maximum temperatures ranging from approximately 15C (59F) to 17C (63 F). Scotland's high latitude means that we enjoy lovely long summer days and often an extended twilight.
As the heat starts to build in Scotland for the summer we see more and more races on the calendar. You can get sunburnt on one, then soaked on the next. June also sees the start of the dreaded midge so keep moving at pace.
