Yes! Last time I was there (quite a few years back) it hosed down all day - must see if I can dig out the (paper) pics.

The rain probably made it more like Campbeltown, Argyllshire.

I wish some rain had fallen that day Tel 35C by 2pm and dry as the Sunday was Total Fire Ban but I believe they were exempt as it was cooler till the winds hit at about 1pm.

Look forward to seeing the old pics they do have some on their website also see link in my reply to Jim.
