Returning to Mull it was fab to see the weather taking a turn for the better, others also staying on the Island and myself met up for a drink or two...well it would be rude not to...and then relax....bliss. There is nothing like the fresh Scottish air to redden the cheeks and make you sleep well.
Grabbing a map of the island it was time to explore and sure enough a small group of us came across heaven in the form of white sands and crystal clear blue seas. The first visit was more of a ...oh whats down there', a dip in the sea showed us its glory but the heavens opened as we exited the water and a trundle back to the car in our swim kit ensued, the second we came armed with swim kit, food, refreshments etc....we didn't risk bringing suntan lotion.....that surly would tempt the mother of all storms too head our way!
Having parked up we had a short walk to a track....follow the track to the bottom a gentle Scottish lilt told us....its owner seeing we were appropriately kitted up, leaned in closer and told us quietly....if you want peace and quiet...don't stay at the first bay, found the hills a few times and each bay gets better, the final bay is the one you want!!!
Heaving swim bags onto our shoulders we trundled down the track and within 5 minutes the first bay appeared, like kids at a firework display we coo'd in appreciation. Walking up the small hills our only company the occasion bleat of the sheep in the distance. Cresting the brow of the hill we found the second bay, breathtaking and exciting more cooing from us....yes i know we are adults but its water.....we love water!!!
