February boasts an average temperature of 5 degrees. There is more chance of snow fall but it is rare that snow is deep enough to close roads! The landscape and colours can be quite dramatic in the winter months and although the days are short there are always wee pubs and cafes in the countryside that welcome visitors with open fires.
A festival that takes place all month in Glencoe offering good craic, good beer, whisky tastings, music, open mics and more. A great excuse to visit this beautiful Glen in the winter.
