Prevailing wind direction?

Recommended Posts

is it true that the prevailing wind direction on Shetland is SW?


I am not asking for fun, it might be important for plans about what could be planted where and to decide whether a property (and/or the surrounding land) offers enough shelter for certain plants and/or how often the land or parts of it are likely to be sprayed by the sea.

so it does seem I might have picked the right spot for what I am planning...

I would need some wind for small scale wind energy (only for domestic use) but I would not need easterly or southeasterly winds blowing too much salty water on seedlings of trees.


tomorrow in two weeks I will know :wink:
