John and Jane's photo of the day
On Saturday Jane, the dogs and myself had a great day out to a hidden gem in the south east corner of Mull, Loch Buie, where you can walk, discover and enjoy the scenery, Moy Castle, Lochbuie House, the wee Post Office Shop with home produce,The Standing Stones,eagles and otters, St Kilda's Church,Laggan Beach and a Mausoleum. If you have sandwiches the wee birds are tame and always hungry for crumbs at the informal car park at the head of the loch. At this time of year it is very quiet here and we almost had all these attractions to ourselves.Ben Buie left is under 3000 feet and is classed as a Corbett but nevertheless it is a majestic mountain and dominates the Loch Buie area. Moy castle on the right is the ancient clan keep of the Maclaines of Lochbuie.
