With darkness falling, hail rattling on the windows and thunder clapping, it is good to be reminded what a beautiful morning it was on the Isle of Tiree – a breath taking sunrise, blue skies and, clear views of Tiree’s snow capped ‘Bens’. Although Tiree is relatively flat, our highest point being just over 460 feet (141m), it often doesn’t feel flat. When close to the sea you are aware that the mountains are on neighbouring islands, or even on the Mainland. Yet, at other times, the mountains can appear to be part of Tiree itself. So, just a few views there were to be had from the crofting township of Scarinish on a bright wintry morning.

Remember that breath taking sunrise and the view over to Mull.
Remember the Treshnish Isles, Dutchman’s Cap and Isle of Mull
to mention just a few of the views.
Remember the walk around the township and the views to sea
Remember looking over the old harbour to the Isle of Rum.
Then down to the Pier at lunchtime to see friends off on the MV Lord of the Isles.
By noon the sky was beginning to darken.
The herald of wintry showers.
Rain – Hail – Snow
Less than seven hours ago sunrise exploded on Tiree.
How different is the view this afternoon.
This is ‘Life On Tiree’.
It has been well said,
“Remember in the dark those things you learned in the light.”
God is Faithful.
