Plenty round our neck of the woods

Same as that, we've had three types of WX:

1. Windy and Cold
2. Cold and Pissy
3. Windy and Pissy

Summer? I don't believe it!

I feel sorry for all the ribsters around the west of Scotland. The only thing that's been mooring there is low pressure off the Atlantic!!!
Cause- briefly high pressure over Europe especially Eastern Europe. Not one cell but a large stagnant area over most of it. Heat waves in France to mention one.
So any low from the west just sits there and doesn't move!!!! As Scotland and NW England already knows.

Ahhhhhemmmm!
Last week, Friday I think it was.
I awoke from night shift to the sound of battering hail stones o the roof and window.
Back garden was white for 10 mins until it melted.
Absolutely dire.
Anyhow I'm off hill walking again on Thursday instead of sibbing.
Happy indoors.

I guess I really do live in a different world than you guys ?

I have just enjoyed another fantastic long weekend in Knoydart and Loch Hourn. Bit remote for most though ? My skin is waterproof and my SIB doesnít mind a bit of chop...not that I have seen that much rough stuff ..so Im not complaining. The grass is always greener on my side of the fence

Campsite for the long weekend


Hill walking in Knoydart is something else and not for the faint of heart


Cloudy..humid and flat calm on Loch Hourn


The mighty Ladhar Bheinn ridge .. finest hill in Knoydart..overshadows Loch Hourn


All the hill scenery tired me out so I had a rest on a deserted shore..miles from anywhere


Then followed a pod of porpoise back to the wild camp site


Yup..I cant complain about my summer.. long may it continue

Certainly is a lovely part of the Country.

Googled it 'The northern part of what is traditionally known as na Garbh-Chržochan or "the Rough Bounds", because of its harsh terrain and remoteness, Knoydart is also referred to as "Britain's last wilderness". Only accessible by boat, or by a 16-mile (26 km) walk through rough country, its seven miles (11 km) of tarred road are not connected to the UK road system.'
