Are you looking at Mull last minute bookings? For May? We might be able to help! Due to some cancellations, we have space in one or two cottages over the next few weeks. We have discounted the price on the weeks showing as available. Please contact us if you are thinking of a short break, as we may consider it, given that time is flying and the vacancies are very soon! It is quite unusual for us to have space at this time of year, and it would be lovely to fill them.
Last week I went off to take photographs on Shetland, and on Thursday afternoon, the 28th of April, whilst I was enjoying some sheltered sunshine on Fair Isle, watching fulmar soaring around the cliffs and listening to unseen skylarks singing their hearts out across the grassy heathery moorland, Farmer and Daughter were building a snowman in the 4 inches of snow that fell during the course of the day. Not the best weather for lambing, and it was an especially anxious day and night for him, until the snow had melted. Daughter is nearly 16, and has only built two snowmen at Treshnish in her life – we have had that little snow here!
Shetland was wonderful but it was fantastic to get home too. The polytunnel has been neglected recently as lambing has to take precedence over everything else at the moment! I spent an hour or so weeding around the over wintered spinach and discovered purple carrots under the Shepherd’s purse that had been planted last winter. The purple carrots are very unusual to look at, and slightly bland to taste – so now we have purple carrot soup.
Please get in touch if we can help with any queries about booking to stay with us. We will be glad to help.
