Default Anyone visiting Argyll?

We are close to having saved the pennies for a decent weather station but
each time we think we have a good place for it - we think we have it wrong
again
As this is a fairly popular tourist area we wondered if any of you who what
know your stuff might be visiting the locality and be prepared to give some
weather station novices some advice.
Because our location is rather exposed we have created a fair amount of
shelter around the house and buildings. The nursery would be perfect but, of
course, it gets irrigated any days we get no rain!!!!
Because of the distances and the thick granite walls we are going to have to
go wireless and expensive !! so we really need some experienced advice as to
what, how and where. -- the Vantage Pro wireless with all singing seems to
be the way to go to give us what we want and get past our obstacles. Its a
serious investment so all help and ideas would be welcome.
Name your poison -- chocolate cakes - colourful free range eggs - oysters --
I am sure we could come up with something !!!
Please email or phone before you come -- we are open from 10 am daily but
would want to make sure we can stop and give you time.
Cheers in hope

My clan (me, better half and two girls) are going to Dalmally (again) in
October, we'll help you site it if nobody else is able to and if we can
manage to navigate the A85 in one piece.

Chocolate cake, strong real coffee and cages for both daughters much
appreciated (:

We will take all advice going - your Timing may be about perfect for its
arrival

Look forward to seeing you

I can't claim to be an expert, but we're planning on coming to see you
anyway, after we move, with a view to getting a few Black Rocks, so I'll
offer you whatever advice I can then.

If you leave it until October then we can have an usw get together,
weather stations and misidentifying greenland whitefronts, cormorants,
pansy potters and eiders sound fine by us although the only goose i can
id with any certainty are greylags (that's because i used to see loads
of 'em in edinburgh many years ago!) (:

What's a black rock? Jet??? You see plenty of them up there too usually
at 500 feet or less (:

We need an outing.

Would tomorrow, Tuesday, at about 11:00 be convenient?
