So long, Oban. At last I’m off to mull things over on Mull, one of the Inner Hebrides. For an island with only 3,0000 full-time residents, however, it warrants aÂ quiteÂ impressive ferry. The journey to the port of CraignureÂ is little over an hour, and on a clear, calmÂ afternoon it’s the most pleasant of boat trips. It’s also a picturesque harbinger of what’s to come.
