Stormy Islay Weather Forecasted

The beautiful spell of weather seems to have ended today with more showers and stronger winds, the morning ferry had to divert to Port Askaig due to adverse weather. Speaking of which, the winds are likely to pick up even more on Tuesday when the remnants of hurricane Gonzalo will influence weather in large parts of Scotland. The Met Office said gales with winds of more than 50mph were likely inland and gusts of 60-70mph in exposed coastal areas in the west and north are possible. This will probably have an effect on the ferries as well so check the latest travel news for updates before you travel to and from the island. The stormy weather will hopefully provide some opportunities for spectacular sea and wave pictures. This morning we walked towards the Currie Sands just outside Portnahaven and had a wee taste of what might come later on this week.
