Just to be clear, the Sound of Mull is the stretch of water between the Island of Mull and the Scottish mainland, not a rustling of marijuana or a Hebridean pipe band.

The first two images of fishing trawlers are actually in the Sea of the Hebrides; the rest of the images are in the Sound of Mull.

As we sailed down the Sound of Mull, the weather was fine and the fog had gone.

Next morning, we sailed the short distance back to Oban.  There was a final surprise not far from our anchorage – a white-tailed eagle.
