Bl**dy hell thats quite a difference! I hope you have plenty of thermals as Aberdeen is the coldest place I've ever visited. (One new years eve many moons ago.) I mean that I've been to places where the actual temp was lower but the coldest I have ever felt was in Aberdeen!
In terms of where to keep Seahound on the West Coast howabout Kip Marina at Inverkip. An hour or so from Glasgae on the Firth of Clyde and they seem to have plenty of hardstanding space.
The other thing that might be of interest is that I seem to recall a story in one of the boating mags about a former navy base somewhere on the Clyde that was being developed into a dryboating facility. If I can dig out the article I'll let you know.
West Coast of Scotland is a fantastic cruising ground, best in Europe IMHO so enjoy!
