Welcome to June
A scene of devastation. Last night this area was full of tents; now only a couple remain. Two have broken poles and many others were flooded out and had to retreat either to cars or the hotel.
The storm started about 8.30 last evening and lasted all night - and is still raging. Winds of at least 60 mph funnelled down the loch and it didn't stop raining. Fortunately I'd pitched my tent on slightly higher ground, so apart from a small leak I've kept dry.
It's now 09.30. I'll stay here for a while to see if it clears up.
