Weather in Ardnamurchan

Many people are surprised at how much good weather we get here in Ardnamurchan. However, when you realise that the only thing between us and Tiree, the sunniest place in Britain, is just a few miles of sea, you will see why.

The most amazing aspect of weather in the west coast of Scotland is the micro climates that exist, often the weather in one glen is totally different from the next. Being a coastal region the Gulf Stream affects the climate in Ardnamurchan so that even if it is cold and wet in Fort William it can be sunny in Ardnamurchan.

Whilst we can't guarantee good weather we can confidently say that you have a good chance of it during your stay. Even when the weather is slightly on the damp side this needn't spoil your stay. Sometimes the scenery is at its most dramatic as the clouds scud across the sky and beams of sunlight try to make their way through to glitter on a loch or brighten a tree on a promontory.
