Given below, are the final August statistics for Edinburgh, Gogarbank from all of the data which I have available which are:

Temperature (°C):

Lowest Min: 8.9 (on 13/8)
Highest Min: 17.1 (on 16/8)
Mean Min: 12.9
Min. Anomaly: +2.1

Lowest Max: 15.6 (on 11/8)
Highest Max: 24.9 (on 24/8)
Mean Max: 20.0
Max. Anomaly: +0.9

Ave. Temp.: 15.7
Temp. Anomaly: +0.7

Rainfall (mm):

Total for Month: 136.2 (200.9% of 1981/2010 average)
Wettest Day: 37.8 (on 7/8)
Rain Days: 15 (133.9% of 1981/2010 average)
Dry Days: 7
Longest Dry Spell: 4 days (23/8 to 26/8 inclusive)
Highest Number of Days without a single dry day: 11 days (4/8 to 14/8 inclusive)

Sunshine Totals (hrs):

Total For Month: 149.7 (100.5% of 1981-2010 average)
Sunniest Day: 11.3 (on 25/8)
Sunless Days: 2

Conclusion:

Overall, August was another warmer than average month, but without any of the temperature records which occurred during July.

However, it was a substantially wetter than average month not only in terms of the actual rainfall amounts, but also in terms of the number of official rain days. In terms of the actual rainfall amounts, it was the wettest August since 2008 at that particular station.

It was also a slightly sunnier than average month overall, although that status wasn't actually confirmed until after 5pm on the very last day of the month. In fact, the deviation from the 1981-2010 August average was so small in this case that we can more or less say that August was an average month overall at Edinburgh Gogarbank in terms of the sunshine totals.

Given below, are the final August statistics for the botanic gardens in Edinburgh from all of the data which I have available which are:

Temperature (°C):

Lowest Min: 8.2 (on 13/8)
Highest Min: 15.3 (on 23/8)
Mean Min: 12.5
Min. Anomaly: +1.1

Lowest Max: 15.4 (on 11/8)

Rainfall (mm):

Total for Month: 140.8 (233.9% of 1981/2010 average)
Wettest Day: 33.6 (on 11/8)
Rain Days: 15 (154.6% of 1981/2010 average)
Dry Days: 7
Longest Dry Spell: 4 days (23/8 to 26/8 inclusive)
Highest Number of Days without a single dry day: 15 days (3/8 to 17/8 inclusive)

Total For Month: 201.7 (124.9% of 1981-2010 average)
Sunniest Day: 11.7 (on 26/8)
Sunless Days: 2

Conclusion:

As was the case at Edinburgh Gogarbank, August was also a warmer than average month at the botanic gardens in Edinburgh, though not as warm overall as it was during July.

August was by far, the wettest month of the summer at the botanic gardens in Edinburgh, and the wettest August there since 2011.

However, the botanic gardens in Edinburgh were much sunnier than Edinburgh Gogarbank right throughout the summer with August also being substantially sunnier than average there, unlike Edinburgh Gogarbank which only had around average sunshine during that same month.
