The Isle of Mull is the least populated of the major Hebridies.  We boarded the ferry for a noon time crossing and arrived with a few hours to kill before we could check in to our cottage.  We chose to visit the MacClean of the MacClean clan.  The last Chief of the clan was the founder of the in the Boy Scouts and all scout organizations all over the world.  Very cool.  It was a beautiful day and a great way to spend some time in the sun...not to mention the really cool castle...maybe our 50th by this

We opted for a three night stay far away from the tourists and were able to secure a sweet cottage on the north end of the island, quite isolated and perfect for a quiet and restful few days.  The girls went out a few times for walks and to visit a local nursery where Carol could as a thousand questions about Rhododendrons...I spent the entire time...and quite a bit of it alone...painting and enjoying the quiet.
