The Gulf Stream started flowing 10,000 years ago and brought us out of our last Ice Age. It starts off around Mexico as a narrow stream with a surface current flowing at nearly 6 miles per hour, 300 times faster than the Amazon. Off Scotland it gets broader and the the flow is down to 1 mile per hour. Then the water sinks as it gets colder and saltier and reverses underneath to go back to Mexico.  


This is what enables us all to live here. Simple as that. It is much warmer in the West of the area than it is inland. It gets much wetter when the rain clouds hit the mountains.



May and June are recognised as the best months for weather  combining sunshine, clear skies and lack of rain. It is still quite crisp in May, but wonderful


Scotland is full of highly variable local climates.


We have one of them in Kentallen. Our little area is warmer, has more sunshine, less frost, less snow than almost anywhere else in Scotland. The records show that every month the temperature here is 15% higher than the average for Scotland. It has 18 days a year less frost. Sunshine in January is 33.5 hours, compared to Scotland’s average of 30.8 hours. Even the rainfall is less.


“The landscape and surroundings of the house are marvellous. It was always sunny. Ardnamurchan three times our favourite part of the West Highlands.”

Alex and Ariane June


“We’ve had a wonderful week, every type of weather. Wildlife watching on Mull, sea eagles, golden eagles and otters being the highlights”
