The Raptor's picture shows Mingary Castle and the Sound of Mull yesterday, with Beinn Talaidh to the right. The castle is close to opening its doors to its first paying guests, which will happen early in May. As well as booking the whole castle for a week or more, you can stay in one of the suites on a bed & breakfast basis during the less busy times of the year. Full details are on the castle's website here.
We were remarking on how quickly these butterflies - it's a green veined white - reappeared after the snow, and then it occurred to us that they could have been flying around throughout the blizzard and we wouldn't have noticed.
Many thanks to the Raptor for the two pictures.
