One of our day excursions from our hotel in Oban Scotland took us to Seil Island.
We were fascinated to learn that this island was connected by a bridge that spanned the Atlantic Ocean.This bridge was built-in the year of 1792 by Robert Mylne. When one stands close to it, you can only marvel at its construction in stonework. The bridge is called ‘Clachan Bridge’, but it is also known as The Bridge over the Atlantic. ( If you click onto the photos they should enlarge )
I walked over the bridge and took photo shots of both sides. And aerial shot from the web, can be seen here. And there is one also in the snow
The Islands main village is called Ellenabeich, it boasts its own 9 hole golf course too, which we also walked around, 🙂 But more of the village in my next post.. As I have too many photos to show you for one post, They show you more of the village with their neat small white terrace cottages, and can any of you remember a film called ‘The Ring of Bright Water’? about otters, well Ellenabeich was the place it was filmed. In my next post I will share more of Ellenabeich’s History.
On the gardening front! our seeds arrived from the allotment association which we ordered this week. I planted my own collected sweetpea seeds in the greenhouse early in the week. Other than that, its been grey damp and chilly here in the midlands. And we have some snow forecast for midweek.. So I shall be hibernating a while longer..
Until Next week..
as I have the next post in my drafts! Big smiles 👍
