Red Deer On Mull

TheTamshee: headed south and west along the A849 Glen More road in search of Red Deer grazing in the shadows of Ben Buie (717m) As the light faded I continued around Loch Beg while looking north to the summit of Ben More (966m) the only munro on Mull. As the single track road meanders west then north to the shore of Loch Na Keal you are treated to spectangular scenery with Beinn a Ghraig (591m) dominating. Continue along the B8035 to pass through Gruline then turn right to take the tourist route back to Salen on the east coast of the island.

Wrecks @ Salen Bay, Mull

TheTamshee: captures the erie atmosphere hanging over these old fishing boat wrecks @ Salen Bay.
