The Wet and Wonderful British Weather
November 1, 2013
A quick look at most of the UK weather forecasts at the moment shows a dismal few days ahead - bad weather for being out and about! But if you do need to go outside, it's the perfect weather for sampling one of our Jollybrollys! Whether your out on the golf course and in need of a golf umbrella to prevent you getting drenched during a game (our rainbow golf umbrella is a fantastic choice!) or doing a spot of Christmas shopping up in town and after a city umbrella it's always good to be prepared! There are some areas in the UK that could benefit from a Jollybrolly more than others though, read on for the wettest places in the UK.
1. Dalness, Glen Etive, Highland
If you're living in Scotland you'd better keep a brolly on hand! This town located in the Scottish Highlands gets an average annual rainfall of 3.3m and tops the chart as the wettest place in Britain!
2. Seathwaite, near Borrowdale, Cumbria
Move South slightly to Cumbria and you get the second wettest place in Britain. Seathwaite - the wettest place in England - gets an average rainfall of 3.15m per year.
3. Glenfinnan, Loch Shiel, Highland
We return once more up North to the Scottish Highlands for the third wettest place in Britain, which gets 3.02m of rain per year.
4. Inverarnan, Loch Lomond, Stirling
Another Scottish location makes 4th position with 2.7m of annual rainfall.
5. Inveruglas, Loch Lomond, Argyll and Bute
There's a theme occurring here, another Scottish area sneaks the fifth spot receiving an average annual rainfall of 2.66m.
6. Capel Curig, Gwynedd
We move southwest for number 6 to Wales. The Welsh village of Capel Curig registers an average annual rainfall of 2.56m.
7. Wythburn, Lake Thirlmere, Cumbria
Cumbria makes its second appearance in the list with number 7; this town on the banks of Lake Thirlmere gets a yearly rainfall of 2.54m.
8. Chapel Stile, Cumbria
This beautiful location in the Lake District receives an average annual rainfall of 98 inches.
9. Tyndrum and Crianlarich, Stirling
This Scottish town also receives approximately 98 inches worth of yearly showers.
10. Lochgoilhead, Argyll and Bute
Last but not least is the tongue twistingly named town of Lochgoilhead, which receives 97 inches worth of rain per year.
So if you're based down South in Hampshire or South East London and looking up at the skies awash with showers wishing the day were brighter, count yourself lucky that you don't live in Dalness, Glen Etive. On the contrary, if you love the stunning quiet and ethereal beauty up North in the Scottish Highlands along with some wet and wonderful weather conditions, grab a Jollybrolly and head up to Scotland!
