Stornoway: officially the sunshine capital of the UK

The Outer Hebrides is going through a period of quite glorious weather at the moment. Day after day of cloudless skies, with little or no wind. Even better, it's well past the midge season, so one can get out and enjoy it without risking any bare patches of skin being bitten.

According to the BBC, two out of the last three days has seen Stornoway have more hours of sunshine than anywhere else (I presume with a weather station where they take data from) in the UK. Last friday saw the capital of the Outer Hebrides be exposed to 6.6 hours of sunshine; yesterday saw the town suffer a relentless 9.8 hours.

Hot hot hot.

  1. Hardly tropical given the sun is so low, but warm enough to manage without a jumper!
