When the rain came

Well no - no snow but just to draw your attention to a change in our weather fortunes yesterday. BUT this did not deter the Six from adventuring over coastal hill and dale in horizontal rain for 6.2KM in search of the lost village of Shiaba and the medieval remains of Kilvickeon church and graveyard.

Obviously too wild and windy to take the iPad so no pics til next week, but it was amazing and poignant wandering around the ruins of Shiaba, long abandoned in the Clearances, up on that stunning hillside overlooking Coll and Tiree.

And today, the rain still beating down, we had a brilliant indoorsy day at the fascinating Historical Museum of Ross of Mull in Bunessan followed by a mega tasty lunch at the legendary Bunessan Bakehouse with freshly baked bread, Mull cheddar and great coffee.

Then onwards and upwards to the weavers at Ardalanish right on the edge of the sea.

And our final night to be completed with a fish and chip supper at said Bakehouse! Table booked, ready to go!!!
