TIDES-how big

I am going to live in glasgow for six months starting jan/o7 attending glasgow school of art.

I am use to fairly large tides in washington state in the winter but am wondering what the largest tides in scotland are. I heard the rip can get really bad.

here I am use to paddlling in a river at times during a 6' (.305m) push or ebb while surfing points near large inlets.

my question is: is the current bad and what time of year is the best for surfing clean offshore head high waves?

Thanks in advance
