Richard Goodson: The reception problem referred to is most likely resulting from a series of high pressure zones which are presently sweeping across most Northern areas of Scotland, the intensity of varying at different times during each day and causing erratic / intermittent reception. Unfortunately these conditions are predicted as not completely clearing away until around next Wednesday evening, although there will obviously be a few spells of respite every day.

By the way, its not really possible to assess the signal levels expected at your location, as although Digital UK has your location listed under the Glen Urquhart VP (vertical polarity) freeview light transmitter, you are forecast as only being able to receive the HD transmitter with a reception status of poor, BBC and ITV (SD) transmitters not being receivable, albeit in reality you do.
