Abstract

The Outer Hebrides (or Western Isles) of Scotland (Figure 1) is one of the windiest and most exposed parts of the United Kingdom, and not the first place one usually thinks of when it comes to temperature inversions and frost hollows. However, clear skies and relatively calm weather conditions do present themselves now and again in the Hebridean climate, and the following article uses a combination of two visible photographs and one infrared image to demonstrate the characteristics of a rather unusual frost hollow located at the bottom of Stornoway golf course on the island of Lewis.
