Sorry I've not posted any pictures recently but I've been unwell. Here's are some I took back in March when tides were very high and canoeists made the most of the Falls of Lora.
These pictures, taken from Connel Bridge shows the "Falls" - caused by an underwater cliff and a canoe braving the rapids. (These are best viewed enlarged as the canoe is a bit small - just click the picture.)
Safely out on the other side!

The view of the Isle of Mull from Connel Bridge (zoom lens). This was a week when it stayed cold with winds and snow showers from the north-west. As often happens in these conditions the snowfalls stayed mainly to the west of Loch Linnhe and we had very little on the eastern shores of the loch.

The house on the left was the store and Post Office - notice the doorway is now a window. The building in the distance is the "old" Campbell Memorial Hall which is now a house.
The Hall was built in memory of John Campbell "The Ledaig Bard", a famous teacher/pastor/poet/postman who held a weekly Sunday school in a cave above the sea shore.In late 2005 the road, now the A828 trunk road, was widened and resurfaced.
Sorting through a few pictures on this cold January evening, I came across this view of the Lismore to Port Appin passenger ferry taken last summer. The boat is being piloted by my friend Allan, who had spotted me plus camera/tripod and positioned his berthing perfectly! Its a short crossing, about five minutes from the north end of the island to the mainland a few miles north of us. There's a car ferry which connects Lismore with Oban from further south down the island.

I had a trip out to the Loch Awe area on Monday. This is the view towards Ben Lui (with a little snow). The railway line to Glasgow runs along the loch side and past Kilchurn Castle. An hour later it was sleeting and windy!
A zoomed shot towards the castle. The little bridge over the railway is at the end of Lochawe station platform and the parked carriage is actually a restaurant.
A bit closer to the castle and the view from the front garden of the house I visited.The catkins are good this year.
