Mull and Iona

Sue - Ferry to Mull from Oban
On the last weekend in July, Sue and I got away for a break to the Isles of Mull and Iona.

Duart Castle Sue - Walk near Torosay Castle, Mull
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.

Mull Railway Mull Railway 2 Mull Railway - on board Turning the Engine Running around
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.

Heilin' Cattle - Mull
Yes, there are highland cattle on Mull.

Eucalypt Walk - Torosay Castle, Mull Duart Castle and Eucalypts
But more surprisingly, there are Eucalypts on Mull!

Sailing - Sound of Mull
This photo is taken from the train, across the sound of Mull - looks like a nice place for a sail.

Tobermory Cat Tobermory Cat 2
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.

The former governor of NSW, Macquarie is entombed here. He was born on Ulva, a smaller island attached to Mull.

Inch Kenneth? Inch Kenneth
One of these photos (we're not sure which) shows Inch Kenneth - a tiny island - Sue took them out of the moving car.

Sue - Iona looking back to Mull Iona looking back to Mull
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.
