This is Dervaig, where I stayed for my one night on Mull.  I actually took this the next day on my way to Tobermory but it works better as an introductory shot.

There has been a village here since about 1200 though the current one was laid out in 1799.  I had a good meal at this inn.  It dates from 1608 and the sign says “The oldest inn on Mull”.  There has been habitation around here for a long time though.  Nearby are some standing stones and the remains of an ancient fort.

After a meal at the inn I took some shots of the sun slowly going down over the water.

Next morning I encountered this curious sight of sheep stranded by the tide.

Actually, they weren’t really stranded and after they got bored with standing there for an hour or so, they made for the shore.

The next day I had to do my laundry so while I’d hoped to go for a drive down the west coast of Mull, I had to make for Tobermory.  I still had a little time for exploring so I went off down the first side road I could find and found this ship.

Finally, a small boat near a wharf towards the end of the road.

    I’m enjoying the ramble through the Hebribes and it is strange the shots that stay with one, the inn of the good meal and wonderful sunset are two such images and the stranded/not stranded sheep another. But really all the images in this journey are increasing my knowledge and love of this distant and wild place.

      I missed this comment for a couple of days. It _is_ distant and wild and there are so many places to visit. It would have been good to be able to travel round without a schedule and linger as long at some places as it seemed to take.
