    DescriptionPlymouth, our sunniest city, traps the light fantastic but it’s dank in Aberdeen.

    Mahmoud Dhimish, the Huddersfield University academic who led the study, said Aberdeen’s placing was a shock. “Looking at existing weather models, we expected Aberdeen to have the most sunlight in Scotland, not the least,” he said, suggesting local fogs were a likely cause.
