We need rain

After months of dry weather we are in desperate need of rain.  Several friends who live up Glen Lonan were without water for 2 months in the winter due to the frost, and now their springs have dried up.  We've had some rain since Thursday at night, it's trying to make up for it now though!  Several guests last week said they came for the waterfalls, but there's none to be seen.

We have wanted to change Holly bunk bedroom into an L shaped bunk for a while, and we finally had the opportunity.  We love the result, and the space it gives, as well as a more comfortable bedroom for an adult.  We hope you like it.

Damon has been working on the chimney pots of the main house this week, and painting the stair well in the Edwardian.
Ceri has updated all the files in the cottages.
Renate has been sanding and varnishing the new bunk bed and drawer set for Holly.

We had a family day changeover on Mull yesterday.  The comment in the visitors book: 'we have now got engaged while watching the seals'.  How romantic is that.

The foxgloves, irises and orchids are fabulous on Mull at the moment.
It was a long haul home though, as the Mull ferry had broken down during the day and it was delayed by an hour.  Caledonian MacBrayne have had a rough week, their relief boat the Clansman is out of action for at least a week, affecting the additional summer sailings to the outer isles as well.
