Obscured by clouds, well nearly!

Autumn is here on the west coast, but the sun still shines in bucket loads on Mull. It's feeling a little cooler in the burns but the sea is still warm.
I am working out at Tavool House Outdoor Centre on Mull this week on a Roses Project residential for a group of young carers from Edinburgh. It's their second trip over this year and it is great to see a couple of faces from the past couple of years return.
A strong wind is blowing up the Loch but the gorge was sheltered today and the water levels almost perfect for a fantastic journey to the sea.

I love this time of the year as the berry's are nearly ready to harvest, the mushrooms are poking through and the deer are lower down the hill beginning to ready themselves for the Rut.  The sun is lower and the hills purple with heather. The slight scattering of sleet on the tops added a real sense of change to the seasons.  I am getting excited for the winter season and our courses are filling up so plenty of time on the hills is envisaged and plenty of amazing landscapes to be seen.
