The winter months(October to
February) can be rather grey. The days are short
with dusk at 4pm. But you can get some cracking
crystal clear blue days especially when a big
high camps over the north. We rarely get heavy
snow, except on the mountains.
In Spring we all await the snow
melt. This takes place some time in April and
heralds the spring runs. A nice warm south westerly
seems to do the best.
Contrary to popular belief Scotland
can have some great summers. Ok so 1998 was a
washout, but 1996 was a real scorcher with not
a drop of rain for 3 months! 1999 has not been
too bad either. There was hardly a drop in August
and only in middle of September did we have our
Autumn starts around the second wek of September
when the trees start to turn. This is a great
time. The first proper rains arrive and with them
the fish, but the weather is mostly mild.
