Weather overcast, travellers fulfilling big ambition (for Nigel) After delicious smoked salmon on scrambled eggs for breakfast we set off at 8:00 for the ferry terminal to leave the island of Mull. Worryingly the car wouldn't start, until we realised the only technical problem was that the clutch had to be pressed to deactivate the starting lock!

We did eventually get out again and enjoyed a late afternoon walk around Oban looking in a few shops whilst enjoying an ice cream. We even booked a wildlife tour around the islands for the following day. Our wild camping spot was so good we decided to spend another night ...
