#Holiday – Touring the Inner Hebrides – Mull to Skye #Scotland

Drawing near to the end of this grand tour of the Inner Hebrides, we travelled on from Mull, over the mainland to Mallaig, where we took the ferry ‘over the sea to Skye’. Unfortunately, we left in a downpour, which made it hard to take a good photo of Tobermore. You might recognise this one […]

#Holiday – Touring the Inner Hebrides – Mull day 3 #Scotland

While my creativity is still on hiatus, I’m going to finish up the rest of our tour of the Inner Hebrides. I opted for 3 days on Mull, and I’m SO pleased I did – we would never have crammed it all into 2 days, and there are still things left over we didn’t get […]

#Holiday – Touring the Inner Hebrides – Mull day 2 #Scotland

I didn’t quite finish recounting our very long, thrilling first day on Mull/Iona, because there was so much to share. At the end of the last post, I said I had an agenda for leaving Iona before too late in the day, and now I’ll reveal all. One of my bucket list items for the […]

#Holiday – touring the Inner Hebrides – Iona #Scotland

I still have several days of our autumn holiday to recount, and before it slips my mind too far, I’m going to get these posts done! After our scary boat ride out to awesome Staffa Island and Fingal’s Cave, we didn’t return immediately to Mull, but instead landed on Iona – a tiny island with […]

#Holiday – Touring the Inner Hebrides – Mull & Staffa #Scotland

To reach our next destination, Mull, we needed to drive up the west coast to Oban. All of the west coast of Scotland is beautiful, but this trip didn’t give us any spare time to stop and admire views, as the time between ferry sailings was pretty tight. We’d already explored a lot of Oban […]

#Holiday Touring the Inner Hebrides day 3 – Island of Islay, #Scotland

The Hebridean islands of Islay and Jura sit very close together, and are most famous for their whiskies! Jura (which we didn’t get across to) is largely uninhabited and mountainous, with a short road down one side leading to a few houses and, you’ve guessed, a distillery. Jura is a great malt whisky, which even […]

#Holiday, Touring the Inner Hebrides, Isle of Arran continued #Scotland

Continuing with the soggy tale of our day on Arran, after our clamber down to the King’s Caves, we were decidedly soaked. Yes, I had the correct waterproof coat, but I’d forgotten that my walking boots live up at the house in the Highlands, which we would be going to after this odyssey, but not […]

#Holiday – touring the Inner Hebrides. Day 1 – Arran, the King’s Caves #Scotland

After touring the Outer Hebrides last year, this year was the turn of the Inner Hebrides. Arran isn’t technically one of the Inner Hebrides, but it fits nicely into a tour starting at Glasgow and heading north, so that was our first destination. If you saw last year’s posts (find them HERE), you might remember […]
