UK weather in March

Hello,

I`m planning to cycle in UK part on eurovelo1 as below.

Maybe I will start journey in Aberdeen on first week in March.

I wonder how weather is there in March. Does it snow in there?

 

Thanks for reading.

UK weather

Hi,

stands a very good chance of being cold and wet along most of that route,to be honest.the UK weather is unpredictable quite often,the best months are maybe June,July and August,but could still be wet and cold.

sorry to be vague and quite unhelpful but as a Brit,that's how it is with the weather,it's why we talk about it all the time

Hi Kim

Hi Kim

There's a pretty good chance of snow in the north of Scotland in early March. You would be cycling through the cairngorms mountain range, which is one of the main skiing destinations in Scotland, and March is still in season. There is a very good path, mostly traffic free, but it is very high and could certinaly be affected by snow. Even if there is no snow, it will be cold. 

Having said this, I cycled from Fort William to Inverness, along the route beside Loch Ness in the middle of February a few years ago and the weather was fantastic - very cold but beautiful. I also cycled through Northern Ireland a couple of years ago in July and experienced more rain than you could imagine. The UK is just pretty unpredictable! 

Good luck with your trip
