After the long cold winter, it’s time to spring into a well-deserved Easter break, which is why the team here at the award-winning Dunalastair Hotel Suites in Highland Perthshire recently launched our latest special offer, helping you enjoy the ultimate in five-star luxury for less.

Already booked your Easter getaway? Here’s everything you need to know to plan the perfect spring break in the Scottish Highlands.

The days are getting longer, the air is getting warmer, and the sun is shining a little brighter, all of which can mean only one thing: Time to put winter behind you once and for all and book a five-star spring break in the romantic Scottish Highlands.

What’s the Springtime Weather Like in Scotland?


While you’ll still experience the occasional rain shower, there’s never a more beautiful time to visit Highland Scotland than the spring. From early March to late May, temperatures range from around  7°C (45°F) to 13 °C (55°F).

The spring season also sees the wild winds of winter give way to a gentler, calmer breeze. Daffodils, cherry blossom and bluebells bloom into life and the native wildlife rouse from their slumber, making this is a truly enchanting time of year.

What to Pack for Scotland in the spring?

Though the air may be warmer and the sun may shine brighter, there’s no escaping Scotland’s famously unpredictable weather, even in spring.

As such, when you’re out exploring Scotland’s abundance of natural beauty, it pays to wear layers that can easily be removed and added as needed.

On warmer days, you’ll be fine with a lighter dress or shirt, but bring a warm, comfortable sweater with you just in case the temperature takes a dip.

A light hat, sunglasses and scarf will also prove useful.
