A Goily, Goily Day

R and I have a term for the typical weather in this area, which is “Goily”.  On a goily day the wind sweeps over Beinn Bheula from the west, and brings waves of cloud, rain and sunshine alternately with it.  The picture doesn’t do it justice, but yesterday we must have had at least ten periods of bright sunshine, immediately followed by murky clouds and driving rain.

It is better than the common Glasgow dreich day when it never seems to get properly daylight, but doesn’t make for very reliable days in the hills because if you wrap up for the rain, you end up melting when the sun comes out five minutes later.

It is Easter weekend and R and I are on holiday next week so I am hoping for the best.
