Scotland in autumn is the dream of many travellers, and no wonder. From the end of September into November the autumn landscapes are spectacular and colourful, with bright blue skies, fiery coloured leaves and air that smells crisp and earthy.

There are still plenty of things to do in autumn as Scotland’s weather remains moderately warm, but the crowds that fill its streets over the high season have thinned and there are lots of great value off-peak accommodation available too.

Whether you’re planning an autumn holiday to recharge your batteries before the winter sets in or are wondering where to go in October for a half term break, Scotland is the perfect choice.

We’ve rounded up some useful and inspiring information about autumn in Scotland, from the best places to go on an autumn walk to ultimate autumn break ideas.
