If the above is you, come to the Hebrides and see the wonders that these magical Islands have in store for you
Its 8.30 in the morning and we have a lemon and orange sunrise with grey chalky clouds just above and a flat calm Hebridean Sea
The sun is rising steadily now and approaching the moon in what looks like two great claws. The sun will soon win through and looks like it will also gobble the satellite up that has been following the moon
There is a huge line of golden topped mountains rippling along the skyline all the way from Craignure to Benmore and Loch na Keal and a great ball of fire created over The south of Mull and Iona. It is all a quite monumental scene here at almost 4pm.
Come and enjoy the real thing yourself, it makes Aurora borealis look ordinary
It is the most vivid and wonderful day here on The Island of Mull and I keep falling off the swivel chair in my office just to lean back and take in the scene of a flat pale blue sea. The greenery from the house is brown and gold and Iona in the distance with its white sand beaches is showing its own beauty even from here miles across the sea.
Come to Mull I say but ideally in April, May or June when there is much wildlife activity. But even now its worth getting in the car and exploring the coast , Seacliff’s and mountains.
