Posted by Bertie Badger on Jul 6, 2014 10:25:00 AM

When it rains it pours.The West Coast weather, this week, has been a bit up and down, with heavy rain taking us by surprise on more than one occasion. However, the sun was more than generous nearing the end of the week, with temperatures peaking in the high teens , really emphasising the features that make Scotland unique.

With the forecast last week originally promising an abundance of rain, we were delighted when the sun came out fighting for the weekend and hope that next weeks less-than-promising forecast will follow suit.

Today: Lots of sunshine today, with brief showers in the early afternoon and cold south western winds

Monday: Rain showers and sunny intervals throughout the day

Tuesday: Heavy rain predicted in the morning and early afternoon, with things clearing up as the day continues. Sunshine is due to make an apperance in the evening

Wednesday: White cloud to dominate, with brief periods of sunshine in the morning, though thins are expected to remain dry.

Thursday: Another dry day, with more burst of sunshine throughout.

Friday: Looks to be another cloudy day with rain expected in the evening

Saturday: The week ends on a gloomy note with rain persisting throughout the day, broken by sporadic bursts of sunshine. Though things are due to clear up in the evening.

There seems to be enough promise of sunshine to plan some more outdoor activities to spite the rain! For those coming to the area we would recommend looking at the available activities hosted by our friends over at Stamash. Archery, Coastering and Kayaking are just an example of what they offer in the Argyll area, making for a great day out!

It's been another pleasant week here at Scotland's West Coast, with frequent bursts of sunshine, warm temperatures and soft breezes bringing the streets of Oban to full life once again.

The days are getting longer and longer, allowing us more time down at the beach before witnessing the delights of a fantastic scottish sunset. With any luck we'll enjoy this weather for weeks to come.

Today: Starting off cloudy, with sunny intervals throughout the morning. Some light showers are expected from mid afternoon and will continue periodically through the evening.

Monday: Thick white cloud will remain for the entirety of the day, though things are expected to remain dry.

Tuesday: Looks to be another dry and cloudy day, with a brief patch of rain in the early evening.

Wednesday: Things predicted to turn a little overcast today causing a bit of an icy chill.

Thursday: More thick cloud to dominate, with moderate winds to accompany

Friday: Expected to remain unchanged

Saturday: The week is expected to end on a bit of a dull note, with periodic showers of rain throughout. Though some bursts of sunshine finally peak through the thick cloud.

Visitors to the hotel this week may want to venture out for a spot of croquet on the lawn so you're never too far away if rain does decide to fall.

For those looking to explore all of the Eriska's wonders you may be lucky to catch a glimpse of the instillation of our first Hilltop Reserve which we're hoping to have ready for decorating by the end of next week.
