Reasons for trip

Heading for Tobermory this morning, we found the weather starting to deteriorate.

Rather than finding ourselves without a return ferry, we decided to curtail our journey and stop at the “Ardnamurchan Natural History Centre for coffee”:

Recently re-opened by new owners, its name has changed back, from Nadurra, to the original ‘Ardnamurchan Natural History Centre’. Inside, it has been refurbished, with the cafe/restaurant area moved to the lower level. The light floods in and we sat watching the scenery, birds and highland cattle while enjoying a mid-morning coffee and scone. (There are still tables on the upper level for those with mobility problems)

The craft/book shop has an interesting range of products and the exhibition is now free and great for children. The outdoor picnic tables and play area for young children will be ideal for warm summer days.

The ‘wildlife board’ listed recent sightings of Pine Martens and a buzzard. I’m sure as spring progresses, there will be sea eagles, golden eagles, whales and much more added to the board as sightings in the local area.

I like the fact they are open at 9am until 5pm. Being able to stop for an early coffee (or later lunch) will mean our route to Tobermory will now mostly be on the direct “ferry from Kilchoan”: and we won’t need to take the car.

For those without their own car, the “bus goes most days”:
