On the last weekend in July, Sue and I got away for a break to the Isles of Mull and Iona.
We started with a walk down to the gardens at Torosay Castle. This is actually a photo of Duart Castle which is across a bay from Torosay.
There's a narrow guage tourist railway that runs from near the ferry terminal in Craignure to Torosay castle if you can't be bothered walking both ways.
Yes, there are highland cattle on Mull.
But more surprisingly, there are Eucalypts on Mull!
This photo is taken from the train, across the sound of Mull - looks like a nice place for a sail.
These photos are of the window of the Tobermory distillery. I mainly took them becase they have a lovely cat that seems to live in the window. She was very friendly. Unfortunately, the distillery was closed.
A couple of scenes on the road West from Tobermory.
We stopped off at the falls at Eas Fors. Very Pretty indeed.
The former governor of NSW, Macquarie is entombed here. He was born on Ulva, a smaller island attached to Mull.
One of these photos (we're not sure which) shows Inch Kenneth - a tiny island - Sue took them out of the moving car.
On Sunday, we went over to Iona and attended the service at the Abbey. Almost excessively non-denominational, but very pleasant. These photos are the only ones we took while actually on Iona.
