Scotland 2015. Day 24 Our Last Day on Mull

Sadly today is our last day on Mull for this trip, but it is a work in progress so we shall be back.  I still need to find and photograph otters and we would love to go out to the Treshneish Islands.  We also need to climb Ben More, but the weather this morning was poor to say the least and the forecast not good.  As it happens the weather forecast got it wrong and this afternoon was not too bad at all.  Still plans were changed and we went to look for otters at Loch na Keal, yet again in vain, although I enjoyed watching the squalls sweep in down the loch, bringing torrential rain and hail for a while and then clearing to leave superb views once more..  We did get superb views of a sea eagle as well.  I had been constantly scanning the area for otters when I became aware that there was an eagle sitting on some offshore skerries, where otters had been seen yesterday.  It sat there for a while and then took off and flew down the loch towards Ben More giving wonderful views.  What a final treat!!

We finished our day with a walk through the forest and up the River Scallastle with excellent views of waterfalls and out to the Sound of Mull.
