View from the kitchen

Craigard kitchen has two windows facing south and west respectively. I've often tried to photograph the view from each without success. However, my house sitters while I was on holiday were Artist friends, they did a far better job than my camera. This is a selection of their paintings and drawings.

Ben Tallaidh and the Sound of Mull
None of the above is visible today as the cloud is right down to sea level but normally its quite inspiring while I peel vegetables.

Cruachan and the Ormsaigbeg road.
View from the kitchen sink..... the road winds another mile or so up to the top of Ormsaigbeg. Its very busy at the moment with visitors and their cars. In the winter there are only five occupied houses and the Post Office van twice a day.

Workshop and house from the east
This original stone built byre is now the workshop, chicken brooder house and kennel for Mac the dog who should keep the pine martens and mink out!

Workshop from the south.

And finally.....because its the curse of the internet that we can all be subject to our friends to our holiday pics at long range ad infinitum.......... Derek's painting of the lighthouse.......... Enough for now.
