Summer has finally arrived in Tayside and Fife with temperatures expected to reach the high teens this weekend.

The area is expected to enjoy a sunny weekend after a week of showers with temperatures as high as 19 degrees.

According to the Met Office, there may be some low cloud coming off the North Sea on Sunday that may impact the temperature, however conditions look clear throughout the majority of the weekend.

“There might be a little bit of cloud first thing in the morning but that should burn off leaving some good spells of sunshine through the day tomorrow and that remains the same into Sunday as well,” a Met Office spokesman said.

With a great weekend of sunshine ahead, there’s plenty of scenic places to visit in Tayside and Fife, as well as spots along the central belt, to enjoy with family and friends, from beautiful waterfalls to a scenic coastal lighthouse – we have picked out some of the best spots to enjoy the weather…

Church reformer, John Knox (c.1513-72) was not known to have visited the waterfall in the 16th century, however the natural amphitheatre is said to have been used by the Presbyterian Covenanters Church in the last 17th century to hold secret church meetings.
