You can look round the Keeper’s house and see how the family lived without electricity or much in the way of creature comforts. It’s picturesque and tranquil because I got the impression it doesn’t get crowded. A really friendly guy was acting as Curator during...More

Got amazed seeing the color of the water, texture of the rocks, and the amazing view. We saw this flowerpot while we were on the Blue heron cruise.

When you are at Tobermory, you must go to see the Flowerpot even the cruise is more expensive. sit down on the chair in the porch deck of the lighthouse, watch the moving lake water and boats, it is in the paradise.
