Mull and Iona

here’s a video from travel guide Rick Steves as he tours Mull and Iona.  I feel very grateful that the days I had this year on these islands were a lot drier and sunnier than Rick encountered on his day.  Not that I mind the rain but it’s so stunning with the blue skies and it’s nice to have a dry, warm spot to sit on a bench and enjoy the view.


Isle of Mull


I don’t know much about this little church but I believe it may be Creich Church, also known as St. Ernan’s Church.  I could see it from the Bed and Breakfast I stayed in on Mull, close to Fionnphort.    If anyone is sure of the name of the building, please could you let me know.

Highland Cows

thanks for the lovely response to my last post on Oban.  I had such a wonderful day there.


I thought here I would show you a couple of pictures from my time on Mull.





I stayed in this fabulous bed and breakfast on the island of Mull and in the morning, as I was packing up to leave, I looked out my window and what did I behold but all these highland cows roaming about on the road in front of the house.


You may think me a bit brave to get so close to them but there was a cattle guard and a gate between them and myself.  Perhaps I was a bit ignorant but somehow I felt that those would be enough of a deterrent for them not to get near to me.  Maybe they are tamer than they look, I’m not really sure.
