Running in Scotland in October.
The pictures for October complete our year long creation of monthly pictures and now all that is required are updates. We plan on adding in good pictures at the end of each month assuming we have any.
In the Autumn (or Fall), Scotland is likely to experience temperatures ranging from around 8°C (46°F) to 14°C (57°F) from September to November. The colours of autumn are eye-catching and vibrant, as the trees change from green to fiery reds, oranges and yellows.
October weather here in Scotland sees the start of the cold and shorter days. A lot of misty days and plenty of rainy days to be expected. On the bright side it is still to early for snow.... usually.
The last of the marathons in the standard calander occur this month, such as the Loch Rannoch marathon.
