Day 10 - Leaving this morning for some ferry rides, standing stones, a distillery and the Iona abbey. Weather was cool but sunny again!! The Inn packed us a lunch but when we landed in Tobermory we had some time before the distillery opened so we got some breakfast. Sam and Benny had yet another mocha coffee. I found the best sweet ever.. Its called TIFFEN. I am now on a quest for the recipet. Went into the Tobermory distillery. OK but was not worth the wait.
Started driving again to find the Dervaig standing stones outside of Tobermory. They were surrounded by a clear cut forest. Certainly a little disappointing just because of the dead lumber lying around.
Travels are now taking us to Iona Abbey the root of Christianity in Scotland. St. Columba landed here in 563. The original buildings have not survived but the buildings that were built in the 1200's are still here. Great tour guide took us around the abbey building with a very insightful discussion.
Back driving again looking for the Kilmore standing stones before we stop at our next hotel. Elke, Sam and Benny race across the moor looking for the
path to the stone circle marked by white stones while I got the long lens out and chased pheasants..
As we were leaving we came across a herd of red deer fawns. I have never seen that before.
Finally landed at Craignure Inn near the ferry docks for our trip to Oban the next morning.
