Spring is on the Way

Weather is probably even more of a topic of conversation on Tiree than it is on the Mainland. Sitting out in the Atlantic we can often see the next weather system approaching. This past week has been a bit of a mixed bad – moderately gusting winds, rain, hail and sunshine. With the frequent mix of passing showers and sunshine rainbows are a frequent occurrence.  With the island being low lying many showers pass us by on their way to the neighbouring island of Mull and the high mountains across the water on the Mainland.  This past week we have become aware of snowdrops and daffodils beginning to make an appearance. Spring is on the way
