06-09-10 Wild and Windy Weather
[Windy Weather in Kinlochbervie]We've had a night and a day of very windy weather here in Kinlochbervie and there's no sign of it changing yet.

Our weather station down by the harbour registered winds in excess of 35 mph during the night but these must have been substantially greater on higher and more exposed ground.

Temperatures remain mild, however, and as more than one person said to me, at least it isn't raining.

The AIS was showing a tug, Kestrel, close in to shore and not moving over by Sheigra so I took a stroll out there this afternoon. I think they didn't fancy braving the Minch with this in tow.
