This picture looks from the gate through the Ardnamurchan Estate's deer fence towards the township. The stone houses, in today's grey conditions, were hardly visible, strung out as they are along the top of the grassy hill in the middle distance.

The one thing I sorely miss is knowing the time and strength of the maximum gusts during a gale. I'm therefore, reluctantly, looking at buying a Davis Vantage Vue, not least because there are two others on the peninsula which have survived the weather. However, what I really want is what I used to have, a cup anemometer and wind vane machine, so I can go on using my trusty low-tech instruments for all other purposes.
Does anyone know of a wireless or wired cup anemometer and wind vane system that's rugged?

In Canada - very justifiably - they make a big thing of 'the fall', but the journey back along the side of Loch Sunart would have rivalled it - if only the sun had been out and it hadn't been raining the whole way.

The forecast is for the southwesterly airstream to dominate our weather until next Tuesday, so there's plenty more Kilchoan sunshine to come.
