3 Miscellaneous Bits From Mull

 Because we opted to stay in Oban rather than on Mull (really, we love both- it was just a decision), we had to take the CalMac ferry from Oban to Craignure and a coach/bus from Craignure to Fionnphort, where our tour boat was to set off. 
That means we had an hour each direction to look out and admire how beautiful Mull is in the summer!
Warning: images with an asterisk were taken through the coach/bus windows. 

*Highland cattle (Highland coo) with a BABY!

 Fionnphort harbour.

 While we were on Lunga our boat crew caught these mackerel.

 Back at Fionnphort Harbour.

 While we waited, a crabbing boat (I know no terminology) came into to dock. 

 I kind of felt sorry for the crabberman (crab+fisherman?) being unexpectedly photographed by a handful of tourists, but it was interesting to watch.

 *Views over Mull.
 *This is a two-way road. That little notch to the left is a passing place, for one vehicle to pull over and wait for opposing traffic to pass, or for a slow vehicle to allow other vehicles to overtake (pass).

 *More Highland cattle!

*Isn't Mull beautiful?!?!

After another dinner at Cuan Mor, a fantastic restaurant in Oban that serves Oban Brewery beer, we left the next morning to head home.  Don't worry, though- we made several stops along the way!
Tomorrow? The prettiest kirk (church in Scotland) either of us has EVER seen!


  1. I love the Highland cattle. They're so gorgeous!
    And I think that the crabberman is used to being photographed ;)

  2. I want a baby Highland cow!
    What a beautiful place.

  3. It's like you were in the midst of The Deadliest Catch: Northern Scotland. Your pictures really do bring the beauty of the place to life for those of us not there!


Thanks so much for stopping by! I can't wait to read your comment!
