... a new experience. Because we are into the winter season, the first ferry to Mull was not until 10 am, we had a leisurely breakfast at the boarding house, starting to chat and get to know the others on the tour. Cheryl and I have made an obvious connection with the German woman travelling on her own, and that is a good thing. We sat and chatted with her on the first 45 minute ferry. Once on Mull, we had ...

Arrived in Inverness which as a town left me a bit cold (I do hope you are picking up on all my witty bon mots). Just seemed a bit messy and lacking organisation, maybe I was just tired from the commute from Stornoway. Anyway went to the airport to collect ...
