Grumpy Old Man

Waterfall, waterfall, waterfall

We left our Mull cottage this morning and stopped off at the lovely garden of Lip Na Cloiche, near Ulva Ferry. A very personal garden with a lovely range of plants, many unusual. Spires of echiums everywhere! Lucy collects various bits and pieces around the island and on the beaches over the winter and incorporates them into the garden. She also makes and sells some lovely crafty stuff too. See

Just along the road is the spectacular waterfall marked on the map as Eas Fors Waterfall, which according to the website is a 'tautologous name meaning 'Waterfall, waterfall, waterfall'! I've seen it looking better during wet weather, but it's lovely anyway. This is the top fall, there's another below and a third falling directly over the cliff on to the beach. I've leaned over to take a picture, but never worked out how to get down to the beach to get a proper view - it's quite a drop!

Just a quick Blip - we caught the 4.45 ferry and were home by 6pm this evening, but I mean to go back and add to them sometime! And to add quotes, of course! (Well this I've now done and can now go to bed!)

Quote of the Day:

John Muir - “As long as I live, I’ll hear waterfalls and birds and winds sing.”
