Weather on the west coast

We'll be arriving in Scotland in a week with plans to explore the Highlands, the Inner Hebrides and Orkney (primarily).

I'm always leery of looking at weather forecasts this far in advance but I'm seeing 50-60% chance of rain pretty much every day for every city I select from Oban to Kirkwall.

What is the usual pattern in that part of Scotland?  Should we expect steady rain? Off and on? A quick downpour then gone?
