Rural Innovator’s Award

The Mull and Iona Food Trail have been shortlisted for a Rural Innovator’s Award and we need your help! The voting is taking place over on the Scottish Rural Parliament website – it only takes a minute, and would help us so much. Every vote counts!

Regular visitors to Treshnish will know that I helped set up the Food Trail last year, producing a Map/leaflet and a website. All the feedback we have received so far has been very positive and this year our Map and leaflet will feature an additional 7 producers, suppliers and eating places, taking us up to a total of 36 – not bad for an island of less than 3,000.

We will have the 2016 Food Trail Map in the cottages again this year. Our guests said they found it really useful.  We are very lucky to have several places locally on the Food Trail map – Ballygown, Calgary Tearoom, Am Birlinn, the Bellachroy Hotel, and the Ulva Boathouse.

Please have a look at the Food Trail website for more information.  And please.. don’t forget to vote for us in the Rural Innovators Award!  Thank you.

This is an old photograph from last year, but we have been seeing a pair of Mountain hares in the garden recently which is lovely.

It won’t be long before the celandine begin to flower.  The snow drops have finally started to come through – they are very late this year!
