  1. http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/media/pdf/b/d/MetLIB_13_001_Factsheet_4.pdf Met office says 5000 mm for west highlands but does not a mention a specific place.
  2. There seems to be alot of dispute which is the wettest place in UK? http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/picturegalleries/5386736/Top-10-Britains-wettest-places.html?image=0 this website states dalness in glen etive is the wettest. While other sites states its seathwaite in cumbria. Also the wettest spot in place is quoted as top of snowdonia with 4500 mm but met office states part of highlands get more than 5000 mm of rain. Can anyone clear up both wettest inhabited place and spot for me?
