Winter in Sutherland Let us be honest, Sutherland is a cold place in the winter. I lived there for 16 years and had some pretty cold times. When
you watch the weather report on the TV the temperatures they refer to
is that of the village. Up at the observatory several hundered
meters higher it can be completely different. When it is
cloudless it is much colder in the village than up at the observatory.
If it is overcast and windy then the observatory is not the place
Some bushes covered in Ice. The wind was close to 100 km/h and the temperature about -5
