The wind speed went up to 105 mph before the holder of the instrument recording lost his hat and then his glasses. This was at the top of Kinnaird Head Lighthouse today. To see the full and funny video go to The Museum of Scottish Lighthouses, facebook or web page.
On the 13th February 1989 a wind speed record of 142 mph was recorded from the same place.
The wind is still howling round though it is now down to 30 plus. Hate the wind. It will be Sunday before I can brave the elements again and I am already stir crazy. I have a meeting tomorrow afternoon so might be able to go look at the sea.
