Scotland’s weather, misconceptions
If you don’t like the weather in Scotland just hang on for a while.

Four wrong ideas about Scotland’s weather

It always raining. WRONG Some parts are as dry as the driest parts of England. While Glencoe has tropical rain 100 inches of rain a year, our cottage, 6 miles to the West has less than  50 inches.

In Winter there is snow everywhere. WRONG Travel down the West coast  roads and you’ll miss the 7 foot drifts inland.

The weather is like Alpine weather.  WRONG. In the North-west Highlands the famous garden, Inverewe, is sub tropical with palm trees growing. Here is a specialised weather forecast for the Northern Isles, Shetland and Orkney

It is always dark and gloomy. WRONG  Daylight in Summer is over 17 hours, the longest in Britain (yes, all right, in Winter daylight lasts for only 7 hours)

Three things make Scotland’s weather. The warm North Atlantic current, the longitude, and the steep sided mountains. The longitude that splits the country North to South also splits the temperature. The East is drier but colder than the West. The mountains dump the rain, the winds increase speed ferociously  high up, and this keeps the tops cold. Ben Nevis has snow at the top all year.

The North and East have double the number of snow days of the South and West. More than 20 days, compared to less than 10 days.

Local weather systems abound in Scotland. In the Moray Firth, there is a warm Fohn wind. When Fort William is rained off,  we’ll go to sunny Ardnamurchan up the road.  The sunshine capital of Scotland is historic Dunbar, south east of Edinburgh.
