Blueberries and peaches in Edinburgh

How easy would it be to find fresh blueberries and peaches in Edinburgh in July? I want to make a dessert (pudding) for my host family and my "specialty" is blueberry and peach crisp. I'm also open to fruit substitutions if you can suggest something that's more readily available. Thanks!
I know blueberries were available in Scotland in May. Fruit available in most grocery stores is Scotland is pretty much sourced from everywhere in Europe, so, as long as it is growing somewhere, it should be available.
Be aware that Scotland suffered a terrible windstorm in mid-May that damaged/destroyed much of the soft fruit crop that is locally grown.
