As early as possible in May would probably be best, the roads start getting clogged up with camper vans & caravans from then on, you should also avoid the worst of the midges then. Even if you aren't camping they can be a pain if you are looking to relax and take in the scenery.

September can be a decent option as well, just spent today wandering about St Andrews in the sun, spotting the American tourists with their tartan trousers and Pringle jumpers tied over their shoulders :D

I'd agree with that. The midges tend to make their presence known from the second half of May onwards.

Just don't forget to visit Ayrshire - lots of history, fantastic coastline, some great golf courses (the Open Championship was created here), plenty of nice bars and restaurants and excellent transport links.
