The view from the living room window

Greetings from the Isle of Mull and, more specifically, the absurdly picturesque town of Tobermory.

Our holiday cottage is actually located up a steep hill above the main high street. This means that every morning we awake to this beautiful view:

It also means that any trip into town necessitates a ten minute huffy-puffy trek back. Considering my dislike of...well, any hill, it seems like the kind of thing that I would have checked when booking the accommodation.

At least I can tell myself that all the marching up steep inclines is helping to burn off the lovely food. We've been hitting the local seafood with a vengeance (D's fingers are riddled with tiny scratches where he did battle with a set of particularly recalcitrant langoustines yesterday). Expect more of my own very specially amateur brand of food photography to abound when we get back.


  1. We were going to go there this year and it didn't work out!!! Jealous. Lots.

  2. Oh how lovely, have a fabulous time x

  3. Sounds wonderful. And seafood is v low calorie - probably negligable when you factor in that hill. I'm rubbish at hills - you can probably hear me puffing in the next county!
