A French tourist travelling in Scotland had met with very unfortunable weather since his arrival. Rain seemed to follow him wherever he went, and he was compelled to stay indoors. One day at last, the sun shone, and the traveller decided to take a walk. He had hardly been out two hours, when the sky became cloudy and soon the rain was falling in torrents. The unfortunate Frenchman sought refuge in a shepherd´s hut. This really is a dreadful climate, does it always rain here? - he asked the shepherd who was quietly smoking his pipe. No, Sir, no, it sometimes snows.

Yes, the weather in Scotland seemed to be cold at Easter time like I couldn't believe. It actually was colder than winter weather in Switzerland or Austria. The cold air felt like ice on my face. Oh, my! I think it rains a great deal there. In winter it can get very much snow indeed. Yes it is funny, it doesn't always rain, sometimes in snows! This is rather sad because Scotland has some beautiful scenery, from the highlands to the islands.
