Information & Links

Welcome to my personal weather station website located in Portree on the beautiful Isle of Skye. The weather in the west of Scotland is always interesting, and it is one of the reasons why Skye is such a fantastic place. The weather is important to daily island life; conditions can quickly change from calm, bright and sunny to fierce storms, squalls and gales. The information below is live, updated automatically every minute. Thanks to High Beech House for providing the Portree webcam, so you can see the current weather conditions as well. You may also want to check out my Skye Weather page on Facebook, where I post general chat, amateur forecasts and discussion about our local weather. Enjoy the site.
