Where has the summer gone?

As I sit here in the office trying to draw inspiration for a blog, the rain is pouring down the window and the wind whistling through the trees. Have we somehow missed autumn? And then I think back to some of the better days of the last month.

We had the Salen show and although the sun only gave a brief glimpse at least it was not raining and we caught up with lots of familiar faces and made some new friends through-out the day.

Then there was Tobermory Lifeboat and a commendable £5000 made through-out the day, Lucky winner of the logs donated by Forestry Commission Scotland was Anne Flavell, she will be cosy this winter.

So what else?

Rachel French our seasonal ranger at Mull Eagle Watch left us slightly early to embark upon her next career, going off to do a primary teacher training post graduate course in Oban. We wish her all the best in this next step.


Work continues along the Lighthouse Path, but that has not been without its challenges as the rain and movement of machinery along the path made for a bit of a muddy job, but Kangley Construction under Gerry and Glengorm Gardens Landscaping under Andrew have worked hard. I would estimate we are now about 2/3 there, and will hopefully be finished by the end of September.

We also had good news that we had been offered funding from ‘Path for all’ to buy some tools and install some steps on the way up Jacob’s ladder so watch out for work parties as we will need all the help we can get !!!!

The flowers on Calgary have been given the chance to bloom and hopefully seed and come September the sheep will be back in to help graze it. Hopefully there will be plenty of tasty nibbles for them
