Which side is best when choosing your seat? I am flying to Scotland, and want to have a good view before landing.
The left, obvisously.
As airport runways typically change operation during the day based on prevailing winds you won't know from which direction you will approach till you get there.
Which airport in Scotland are you flying into? Where from? What do you want a view of?
There's no guarantee, as said, which way you will land as that depends on weather, especially wind directly at the time. Plus, if there's low cloud, which side of the plane may matter not a jot. You may not see anything until the last couple of moments before you land by which time you might already be over the runway!
However, surely the rule is Port Out, Starboard Home!

And perhaps surprisingly there are several airports in Scotland so the view you get will differ according to which one you arrive at. And it rains a lot in Britain - don't expect to see much apart from the clouds until you're on final approach, by which time most of what you can see will be airport!
The outside will give you the best view. You might want to put a coat on.
You get a great view both sides if landing at Barra!Edited: 08 June 2018, 04:17
The questions we get in here really baffle me sometimes. I mean, how could anyone write this and think someone could possibly answer it? Scotland has more than one airport and we're not even told where the OP is arriving from!
Id sit on the inside personally
OP give us a bit more information please
Going east from the U.S. on a night flight, I try for the left (facing forward) in hopes of a glimpse of the Aurora Borealis. On the right coming back.
