Your guide to September and October weather in Glencoe, and the areas of Fort William
and Oban on the West Coast, Scotland
The West of Scotland gets more settled weather in September and October than in the
summer months. It is much warmer compared to the rest of the country particularly
in the East.
The Gulf stream moves warm water in and out of Loch Linnhe producing warm weather.
September is the 2nd best month for settled weather after May.
The West of Scotland, including Glencoe, Fort William and Oban have long days even
in September and October.
Most of the visitor attractions are open during September and October, yet visitors
are still relatively thin on the ground. Roads are clear, bliss for driving.
The West Coast of Scotland is a truly magical place.
We love your cottage, it is so well equipped. You seem to have thought of everything.
Home from home. We’ve had a lovely relaxing holiday and hope to come back. Kay and
We have had a fantastic week. Walking through Glencoe in the mist and rain was amazing.
I never realised how beautiful rain could be. Polly Steve and family. October.

The Gulf Stream started flowing 10,000 years ago and brought us out of our last Ice
Age. It starts off around Mexico as a narrow stream with a surface current flowing
at nearly 6 miles per hour, 300 times faster than the Amazon. Off Scotland it gets
broader and the the flow is down to 1 mile per hour. Then the water sinks as it gets
colder and saltier and reverses underneath to go back to Mexico.
This is what enables us all to live here. Simple as that. It is much warmer in the
West of the area than it is inland. It gets much wetter when the rain clouds hit
SEPTEMBER AND OCTOBER SURPRISINGLY GOOD WEATHER
