Spent Saturday night and most of Sunday and Monday on and around Mull with my son Joel and a few others. The aim had been to go snorkelling with Basking Sharks at Skerryvore but rough sea conditions prevented this.

We got as far as the pale blue calm (and cold) waters of the Cairns of Coll. No surprises bird wise but Joel saw his first ever White-tailed Eagles, three including a juvenile, we had ridiculous views of the Tysties along the promenade at Oban and dramatic scenery every time we sneezed. Throw in a bit of wild-camping, some boat-skippering and hand-feeding Lesser Black-backed's off the upper deck of the ferry on the way back and we had an enjoyable weekend.
