Neist Point Wind Measured?

Jump to last reply

On my recent trip to Scotland, on the Isle of Skye, we stopped at Neist Point and the winds were howling so much that I could barely stand up, had to hold on to a railing. A little earlier in a nearby area, the wind actually blew me to the ground.
Can anyone tell me how to find the recent wind speeds at Neist Point? Are they even measured?
All I know is, I had never experienced winds like that outside an approaching hurricane I was in years ago.
