Torr na Locha Update

I made a quick visit over to Torr na Locha yesterday to meet up with the el
ectrician. The weather was typical December weather with heavy rain (snow on Ben More) mixed with spells of fantastic sunshine and intense colours. It always seems to be pouring down as I drive across Mull but invariably dries out as I get further down to Iona and the Ross of Mull. Stood at the house in the sun we frequently look acroos to the other side of Loch Scridain and the mountains of the Burg peninsula covered in dark black clouds.

The stonework at the back of the house is now finished and the stone and scaffold are in place to finish the front early in January. Inside the livingroom end looks a proper building site but again the first couple of weeks in January should see it come together quite quickly. In such a remote location getting materials delivered and finding and organising people to help with the work is extremely time consuming and requires a lot of patience and for some jobs you just have to accept that you have to do them yourself. But hopefully by the start of February it should be starting to come together, though 3 months down the line we are still waiting to see any progress on the electrical supply.....
