The Bellachroy was groovin to the beat of the Mull Music Festival over the weekend 26-28th April. It was great fun with three top bands; Ho-Ro, Beinn Lee and Papa Shandy with an open mic session on Sunday. The drinks were flowing and a very very good time was had by all. People travelled from far and wide just for this popular event, with holiday visitors and locals making up the mix. We can’t wait for next year’s festival!
I took my friend Bonnie to Quinish Point today, it’s about 4 miles from the hotel, just the job for energetic pooches! A great walk with views over Loch Cuin and over to Ardnamurchan Point. We saw the Coll ferry and yachts passing by and wildflowers; primroses, bluebells, cuckoo flower, wood garlic, marsh marigold and wood anemone. Bonnie and I had to sniff them all to make sure! We had crisps for lunch and saw seals sunbathing on the rocks. There were lots of sheep about making the place look untidy. Bonnie and I could have rounded them up but we had to stay on the lead all the time. Our owners are spoilsports!! Then back to the Bellachroy, Scotland’s best hotel for dogs!
On the 16th of March we’ve been here one year, yippee! Over the winter we have been busy with improvements. The bedrooms are now more comfortable with new furnishings and TV’s. A new efficient boiler has been installed, so lots of hot water and reduced fuel bills! Our new outdoor barn has gone down well with the locals. Constructed by a local craftsman, its probably the best barn in Scotland!
I have lived on the Island of Mull for one year now and I have been very busy. I have to keep a constant watch on the premises from my specially constructed eerie in the office, and I have to keep fetching my ball because my owners keep insisting on trying to throw it away – and its MY ball. My friends Bonnie the Sheltie and Heidi the Dachshund come to visit me every so often from England.
