One thing we believe can be agreed on by all who have been residing in our neck of the woods this August is that the west coast weather has been - to be blunt - rubbish!
What usually is the summer's best month has, this year, been a constant array of disappointment, with thick cloud blocking out the sun and casting us into darkness about an hour prematurely in the evenings and frequent rain showers drowning our flora and leaving behind puddles so large we can hardly distinguish them from the pond on the front lawn.
Though we can officially say the summer holidays are over, with the Scottish school's commencing for a new year this week past, we still remain blindly optimistic for our last stretch of summer before the Autumn chills take over
Today: Heavy rain showers sporadically thoughout the day, with some brief spells of sunshine.
Monday: Will remain dry, with frequent sunny intervals in the morning and afternoon.
Tuesday: Expect more sunny spells during the day, with light, breviloquent showers mid-afternoon
Wednesday: Looks to be dry for most of the morning and afternoon, with rain developing in the later half of the day
Thursday:Rain showers predicted to dominate a large part of the day, with moderate winds adding a chill.
Friday: Rain showers and sunny intervals throughout, with things expected to dry up in the evening,
Saturday: The week looks to end on a dreich note, with showers persisting throughout.
The average temperature high for the coming week of 13-14 seems fitting to the stereotype of the weather in the west highlands of Scotland, however residents to the area seem less that willing to accept the end of what has been one of the better scottish summer's in ages - especially with the upcoming Oban Games, which is largely an outdoor event.
Though not to worry, guests to the Island can take shelter this week in our spa and experience pure bliss with one of our luxurious pamper days which will help you forget all about the gloomy scottish weather!
