Magnificent Weather

'Magnificent' is the only word to describe West Ardnamurchan's superb weather at this time of year. One minute, the sky growls with dark, forbidding clouds, the next....

....the sun ambushes them, shining under their bellies to touch droplets of rain and create the most stunning rainbows. This view looks across the Sound of Mull to a Tobermory lighthouse picked out by the rainbow.

Both yesterday and today saw sunny intervals during which the sun, shining through beautifully clear air, became so hot that some of us got sunburnt. Yes, sunburnt - not a word commonly associated with the west coast of Scotland. Sunburnt. Wow!
