School holidays, weekends, early evenings and early mornings are the busiest times for airports.

What to expect in Inverness

Similar to Manchester, the weather in Inverness is famously unpredictable. If you're visiting during the summer it's a good idea to pack your waterproofs and a few jumpers as well as your warm weather clothes. Despite being on a similar latitude to Juneau, Alaska, the temperature in Inverness is fairly mild. It's usually about 14°C in July and August, and 4°C in January.

One thing to watch out for is the currency. Scottish bank notes are different from English ones. Most establishments in Manchester are happy to accept Scottish bank notes, although some businesses do raise their eyebrows. To be on the safe side we recommend either withdrawing cash before you leave Manchester, or only take small amounts of money out of the ATM at a time.

The midnight pub curfew ended in 2013, and it's now possible to find some great nightlife in the city.
