The Hebridean Weather Station is an excellent resource for a wide variety of information on weather. It also has a link to a ship and flight tracker (AIS), so you can check which boats/planes are passing the Hebrides by sea and air!

When you are researching the land weather forecast it is good practice to always check 2/3 sites to get a good overall idea of what is being predicted.

When Tidal planning always check the Met Inshore Forecast to find out if it is wind with or against tide………it can make a huge difference to the sea conditions!
