We Will Remember

Will we be able to walk today? The weather forecast is not all promising – heavy showers for most of the day!

As we walk along the shore at Gott Bay we look out across the water towards the Isle of Mull. Is that snow we are seeing or is it just the clouds? Opinion is divided.

Later in the afternoon, we gather at the War Memorial, just off Pier Road, and we are reminded that many walked this way as they went off to war, some never to return. Standing there we see the snow capped peak of Ben More. Beinn Mhòr (Gaelic), meaning “great mountain” is the highest mountain and only Munro* on the Isle of Mull, Scotland. It is the highest peak in the Inner Hebrides out-with the Isle of Skye.

Before the sun sets, we leave the War memorial and make our way to Scarinish harbour and beach. It is a favourite spot and we are not disappointed. As the moon rises and the winter sun sets we conclude we have had another very special day. Not a drop of rain in daylight hours. Was that a drop I just felt?

I lift up my eyes to the mountains –
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
From the Bible – Psalm 121

* In Scotland any mountain that reaches an elevation of 3000 feet or more is known as a Munro
