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.




The Autumn is a stunning place on the West coast mainly for the colours. Everything is red and brown. The most wonderful thing is the lack of traffic, and most places are still open until Hogmanay at the Year End.


Hogmanay and Christmas get booked up for self catering long in advance.

“We had a lovely lovely stay at the cottage. This is our first time in this beautiful part of Scotland and it will not be our last. We took lots of drives around Glencoe, Fort William and Oban. Endless beautiful scenery.”
