Yes, particularly for a coastal location, where there had been an inch of rain only a few hours earlier.

It more common for inland places and dry climates to have higher ranges, but not coastal, high rainfall climates.

You must think it's reasonably impressive, as you seem to post whenever you get a big diurnal range.

Actually, looking at the Wiki page for Altnaharra, I get the impression it doesn't happen a lot.

It's yearly range seems quite large though. Is it the biggest in the British Isles?

Not sure.
Maybe once a month or every two months or something.

I don't think a range of 21C is unusual at Altnaharra. They certainly get large ranges every year - I found a range of 20C in May this year.

I wouldn't think it's unusual, I was just curious about the "alot" part.
