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?
