Areas Covered:

Centred on Thurso, but may also mention Edinburgh and Machrihanish in the recommendation area.


Well overhead for the North Coast on Saturday, but with strong cross-onshore winds. The few spots that can handle North Westerlies are the places to head for, and there will be lots of wrap-around swell happening for the East Coast. Sunday will see the swell drop to just overhead(!) high, still with strong winds, but now from the South West - so things will be a lot cleaner and more favourable for North facing spots. The East Coast will be biggest on Saturday, with head high plus swell and strong cross-offshore North Westerly winds, so find shelter under cliffs. Sunday will see the swell drop away to 1-3ft plus, with clean South Westerly winds. The West Coast too will also be biggest on Saturday in the shoulder to chest high range, before dropping away to 1-2ft on Sunday. Winds will be unfavourably onshore throughout for the West Coast. So overall the East Coast on Saturday, followed by the North Coast for Sunday, good hunting…………


Swell: 9-11ft plus Wind: NW force 5-7


Swell: 5-7ft Wind: SW force 5-7 plus
