Aleria's Jaunt to Scotland: 20-21 July 2013, The Treshnish Isles and Tobermory

Nature and human nature  We’ve had this amazing weather – like the Caribbean – hot and hazy and occasionally humid. Light winds. Smooth seas.  Pretty bloody unbelievable.  For two weeks and more to come.  Everyday, the forecast read something close to this:

Meteorological situation: a high of 1030 mb has settled over Europe. 
Forecast for 24 hours. Winds variable E-NE Force 2-3, seas smooth, conditions fair, visibility moderate to good, poor in fog patches, risk of thundery showers, temperature reaching a high of 22-24 degrees C.
