Torr na Loch Progress

I've just had 4 days over on Mull, fitting the new shower room and starting the plastering of the walls. The bathroom isn't quite finished as I had the wrong fittings for a couple of connections and it is a 5 hour round trip to the nearest plumber! Hopefully I'll get the right fittings for next time.
The picture above is looking 
north up the west coast of Mull from
 just outside the house.
The pink sign post is half way from the ferry to Torr na Locha. The village name on it "Salen" always seems quite a creepy name for an island village but I'm told thats just my subconscious connecting it to Arthur Millar's play about the Salem witch trials.
The mountain behind it is Ben More, Mull's highest mountain at just over 3000 feet. Every couple of years someone gets into trouble on it and we get lowered out of a helicopter half way up it to track them down before being whisked away again in the same way. It's usually all done in the dark and very disorientating, though the dawn flight back over to the mainland can be very beautiful if you are by the one available window.
