Mulling it over .....

Across from Corran to Ardgour and its lighthouse

Today we headed across from a very wet Newtonmore to the Isle of Mull, where we will be spending the next week in self-catering accommodation at BunessanWe drove down passed Loch Laggan to Spean Bridge, onto Fort William and then took the short Corran ferry across Loch Linnie. From there to Stontian before heading over the hills to Lochaline and the ferry across to Mull. Once we got to Mull the showery weather ceased and the sun came out.

Some photos of our journey through some stunning scenery to to Bunessan:
