Mull.  A fairly near neighbour, famous for the town of Tobermory with its brightly painted facades and travelling cat.  Tobermory is a lovely little place which has a life beyond the tourist  trade, though tourists are important.

A ferry can  take you from there, across the water to Kilchoan on the Ardnamurchan peninsula and then onwards to the most westerly point on the Scottish (and British) mainland.

Somehow I’ve never taken a picture of Tobermory, or the cat.            But I did buy these there

 

Away from Tobermory there’s lots more of Mull to explore. Castles, beautiful beaches, more ferries, and  smaller islands to explore; one  the holy island of Iona.

 

We go for day trips and longer stays. We spent our tenth wedding anniversary there. DogStarke loves it too. And what better recommendation can you get?
