De-Stress With Dandelions & Rainbows On Isle Of Mull

Pin It Now!

My first time in Scotland took my breath away.  The beautiful curves of the mountains, still lakes and the clear blue waters by the Isle of Mull really was spectacular.  If you need a place to unwind and relax, this would be it.

You may wish to commence your journey in Glasgow, rent a car then drive onto Oban.  This supposedly should have taken us less than 2 1/2 hours but photo stops and breaks meant over a 3 hour journey.  In Oban as tempted as we were, we didn't stop for lunch.  Instead we opted for crab and prawn filled sandwiches to take on board with us, which we happily munched on whilst we gawked over the lovely views.

As we approached the Isle of Mull, the heavens opened and littered us with its salty tears.  Our afternoon on the beach was dampened.  We opted for Duart Castle, home of the ancestral Clan Maclean.  You will especially enjoy being taken back in time.  The kitchen was one of my favourite rooms.

The favourite moment was when I spotted this beautiful rainbow in the sky!  A magical moment in the castle indeed.

The drive towards Tobermory was just as beautiful.  These boats deserved a stop and a photo moment.

Do you remember dandelions as a kid?  As we walked from our bed and breakfast towards the main streets lined with shops and a few restaurants, we enjoyed a moment with the white cluster of cloudy flowers.

This lovely day was sealed with an absolute delicious meal of prosecco and a seafood platter!  Simply divine.  Food for the soul.

A walk by the boats to walk off dinner and it's off off to bed I think.  Until the next adventure!
