Love The Weather

When To Come >> Love The Weather

Weather - we've got lots of it, and we like it. The trick is to relax and embrace it. There's always a soak in a hot bath when you get back, or the steam room. And there's proper drying space for wet clothes.

This short video shows the right spirit (suggest you right-click and open in a new tab / window):

The truth about rain

  • It's only water - and here it's as clean, pure and fresh as can be.
  • What to do when it's wet? Usually we fail to think of the obvious answer: get wet!! Often it turns out to be the best day of your holiday.
  • Let's keep this in perspective: Gelston is less than half as wet as Argyll, drier than much of the Lake District, often even drier than southwest England. We're also drier than just a few miles inland from us - we seem to have a microclimate right here on the estate: it's often sunny here while at Castle Douglas it's cloudy or wet. In fact we don't have as much rain as we'd like for growing trees!
