Sometimes the warmest place in Scotland
Sometimes the warmest place in Scotland
Altnaharra weather station: When there is a southwest wind, the Föhn effect can raise temperatures here on the lee of high ground - the hills cause water to condense which heats the atmosphere along with warming due to the pressure rising on descent. More frequently though this is the mother of all frost hollows, frequently recording temperatures below -20°C and is joint holder of the Scottish (and Great Britain) record for lowest recorded temperature, -27.2°C.
