I always seem to gravitate to the West Coast of Scotland mostly because I’ve not seen much of it but the sheer beauty of the landscapes really sways it. So this time I had a long weekend on the Isle of Mull, I explored the little seaside town of Oban full of gift and craft shops then jumped on the ferry to do some fishing, climb some hills and eat the biggest seafood platter I’ve ever seen in Tobermory.
While this is just a chance for me to show off my holiday snaps I thought I would share a lovely bit of art with you. Although it isn’t pattern related nor is it from the Isle of Mull itself these give a hint of how island life can really inspire.
