Island Life

A winter halo

I caught this beauty whilst taking Fuggle out for her evening constitutional – moonlight being refracted by millions of ice crystals. Such a lovely sight!

Winter storms

Oh winter! It’s been super windy and we got battered by storms over the New Year. We have trees that have just been ripped out of the ground and small bits of damage to the lodges including the trellis outside Willow finally giving way. We’ve been putting off replacing it as we liked the plants. But this took the decision out of our hands! Instead of getting panels we’ve replaced them bit by bit, so we’ve saved the plants and it looks nice and refreshed for the new season. Yay!

 

Escape to the mainland

We don’t leave Mull very often, but when we do, we make the most of it! A full day in Oban – shopping, opticians, dentist and then a wee treat on the boat on the way back.

The evening sky

We’ve been having glorious weather for the past few weeks – the evenings are getting longer and we’ve had some amazing skies. We’ve got availability left in April if you fancy a short break with us – for a limited time a three night break can start any day of the week.

Autumn in Mull

We love watching the seasons change and Autumn has definitely arrived. Mull is getting quieter now, some of the restaurants and cafes have closed until next year and the shops are reducing their hours. The hills and beaches and pathways stay open all year round though, as do we!

If you want to escape for a few days our availability calendar is always up to date and online.

Fun family times

We’ve had a great week with family and for once, we managed to leave site and do lots of fun things! We finally visited the aquarium, we’ve been building sandcastles, going on boat trips and, my favourite thing, crabbing in Tobermory. Sadly we’re back on our own again and about the tackle all the jobs we avoided whilst doing the fun things!

Sad times at Cill-Mhoire

Those of you who have visited us over the last five years will have met our two ‘assistants’, Fuggle and Simcoe.

Sadly we lost Simcoe recently. She had a degenerative spinal issue that even the best vets couldn’t fix and on their advice we let her go.

We’ll always miss her x

Christmas on the beach

We had Tom’s family visit us over Christmas and had great times exploring and climbing on some of Mull’s best beaches, including on the rocks above Traigh na Cille beach near Torloisk. Christmas and New Year here can be magical – why not think ahead to 2022 and book your Winter stay with us!

The longest day

It was a lovely evening watching the sun set over the longest day. The weather has been amazing this week – long may it last!

Uncovering the past

Down at the bottom of the garden near to the road are the remains of the old cart track. It has lovely mossy stone sides and we have wanted to try and uncover it and restore it for a while now.

A recent spell of windy weather meant the largest of the trees covering the path was damaged and needed cutting down giving us the perfect opportunity to start work. It also meant Tom could use the chain saw so he was happy.
