A week on the Isle of Mull

We have just had a week in Mull and stayed at the gorgeous Treshnish cottages in the North West of the island.  We had fabulous weather - 5 days of glorious sunshine... unbelievable at this time of year....  we walked and mountain biked most of the week and ate well, we were able to get lamb and beef off the farm....our cottage was gorgeous: just 2 cosy rooms.....and we were snuggly warm as it was really cold outside.....we spotted eagles, sea eagles and otters.....I took my sewing machine and ended up having to schedule an afternoons quilting - as we didn't have any bad weather to keep me in....hubby says I should always take a sewing machine now as it will guarantee fine weather....but also took my knitting and sewing....took too much: but hey ho...



So this was our gorgeous cottage 'Shieling'





And this was its interior




These are the 'Haunn' cottages which were a mile down the road - and equally as lovely....



Treshnish Farm had some very happy hens - there's no foxes on the island - that produced yummy 
blue eggs........


The Treshnish Isles which we looked out to - I thought they looked very Japanese like a pagoda....





and Ben More - the only 'Munro' on the island



And this was the local beach - Calgary Bay - on a very busy day...




And this was the local town ......Tobermory.....


and now we are back in Yorkshire and its very cold and very snowy...roll on Spring!
