It was really lovely to receive a postcard through the post with a poem written by our recent guests Joan and Bryan Howard

We are so pleased that Joan and Bryan enjoyed their cruise despite the severe weather disruption caused by storm Ali. We had to deploy an alternative itinerary in sheltered waters, but guests agreed that anchorages around the Sound of Mull are as beautiful as any to be found elsewhere in the Hebrides. Tobermory is a wonderful sheltered haven with lots to do and see and a land wildlife tour with Nature Scotland got rave reviews.  The final evening at Loch a Choire helped to make up for the weather with a lovely sunset and scallops hand-dived in the loch by Skipper Rob.

The weather made it challenging to spot wildlife too. However, Wildlife Guide Nigel Spencer captured this excellent shot of a very young White Tailed Eagle, probably only about 4 or 5 months old, off the coast of Morvern.  It had been moved on by its parents to find its own way in the world and still had to develop its distinctive white tail feathers which can take a year or more.
