Running in Scotland in September
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.
September weather here in Scotland can sometimes be hot and then very wet. Towards the end of the month when the leafs start to tumble some of the paths can get a bit slippy. The days are starting to get shorter and it is more noticeable.
September is also the month for some lovely races. The Hel N Back hill race, Loch Ness marathon are just two that spring to mind though everything has changed due to COVID.

Picture from the west side of the loch and about half way up. This route is not on the site yet.
All is still on Loch Katrine. We've ran the road around the loch many times as it is a good training run. The route included is from the is from the marathon which is usually in March.
The loch looking lovey on a still morning.
This picture taken while on a small detour from the Pitfitchie loop. This is called Jenny's well.
The view during a short road run in Torridon. This is an area we need to explore much more.

Loch Ness marathon start line
The start of the Loch Ness marathon takes place in the middle of nowhere. From here it is just over 26 miles to get back to Inverness. Another route that is waiting to be added.
Loch Ard forest
Part of one of our favourite areas to run in due to the choice of routes. The picture shows the old viaduct taking water to Glasgow from Loch Katrine
The start line of the Berlin marthon. A rather flat route with some wonderful things to see on the way round.
Hel n Back hill race
This is a great wee run organised so well by Helensburgh running club. Some tough sections along the way but great scenery
We always stop at this point looking over Loch Ard. A real favourite spot that changes so much with the seasons.
Glen Coe marathon
The tough climb up the Devil's staircase. From 2021 the route has changed direction meaning this part is now downhill.
The Glen Kendrum - Glen Ogle loop from Lochearnhead is one that is really worth the effort. Tough but with views like this it is hard to beat.
Looking towards Ben Lomond
Turning round on parts for the Loch Ard loop route you are rewarded with lovely views of Ben Lomond.
