Just a quick update:

"ROCKALL MALIN HEBRIDES WEST OR SOUTHWEST STORM 10 TO HURRICANE FORCE 12, CYCLONIC AT FIRST IN HEBRIDES, DECREASING 7 TO SEVERE GALE 9 LATER. RAIN OR SQUALLY SHOWERS. MODERATE OR POOR"

This morning the met man said that in the far north west of Scotland, steady winds of 95 knots, gusting to 115 kts had been recorded!
It would have been higher in the hills! Now that would have been some lift!
