Ardnamurchan

I was back in Scotland just before Easter weekend. On Easter Sunday, mum and I drove west from Glasgow. We stopped at Loch Fyne Oysters where we had breakfast and bought some fresh fish and meat and then Fyne Ales where we bought a 5l mini-cask of they’re very ‘fyne’ Jarl light ale. We had lunch at the Kitchen Garden in Oban before getting the ferry over to Mull and another from Tobermory to Kilchoan on the Ardnamurchan peninsula. The ‘CalMac’ ferry ‘Hopscotch’ saved a much longer drive and the new government subsidised pricing makes attractive as well as scenic and relaxing. From Kilchoan it was a short drive to the lighthouse.
I had booked one of the lighthouse keepers cottages for a few days.‚Äč [image: Inline images 1] The pink granite blocks from nearby Mull are massive and none of these buildings are likely to change within another several hundred years.
