Visitors are philosophical - they just wear extra layers and continue to point their cameras in the direction of the Cuillin, though their pictures will only be of the thick bank of cloud where the Cuillin would be on a fine day. Then they can tick off 'visit Skye' and dash on to their next destination, where maybe things will be a little warmer.
It can be a bit tiresome for us who live here though. I'm not one to bother too much about the weather, and the long wet winters don't get me down, but now we are having to prepare ourselves for the coming winter following on from a long grey summer. A bit of summer sunshine would have been nice!
However - yesterday, we had just that. A beautiful, dry, sunny, calm Skye summer day. And suddenly, all that is so wonderful about Skye in summer was there to enjoy - and there was even a wonderful big evening sky to end the day.
But it's damp and grey again this morning....
