Title

Newspaper Clipping – Correspondence about Carsphairn weather – 1915

Description

A Carsphairn correspondent writes to point out that we did his parish some unintentional injustice in a note in this column last week, when we described Carsphairn as the rainiest district in the Stewartry. Our correspondent states that the rainfall record which is kept at the Shiel, and from which we took our information, hardly gives a just record for the whole parish, as it appears that hay-making is often going on in the valley of the Deugh while rain is falling at the Shiel, which is situated very high among the hills. We are pleased to hear this, but all the same the Shiel can afford to give away a good deal from its record, and we would not advise anyone to go to Carsphairn on holiday without a waterproof.
