We have had a very busy few months at Ardnacross. The unseasonable weather has provided us with some challenges but August came good and we have managed to get the silage all made and baled up for the winter food for the cattle. We have built a new barn for wintering the cows in which will provide some excellent shelter for them and free up our old water-mill barn for the sheep and some of the machinery.
The farm shop has been as busy as ever and we have had a host of guests staying at the properties who have been having a wonderful time exploring Mull. Renovations on the Square are now complete and a new electric Aga has been installed in the kitchen.
The family arrived for the second half of August with their various friends meaning that there were so many of us that we could host our own Highland Games. This included caber tossing, tug of war, wellie throwing and running races. We also had another amazing trip with Coastal Connection, this time out to the Cairns of Coll where there are beautiful sandy beaches and clear water, definitely worth a trip.
