According to the Minutes of a recent Mull Community Council meeting at which a representative of SPR gave information on the possible route of the transmission lines, the ones they are looking at are the sea route south of Mull to just north of Oban and the route through Loch Na Keal to Salen, down to somewhere near Craignure and then over to Oban and down the road to Dalmally.

- According to the SPR, the land route from Loch na Keal would be put underground; same for following the road down to “somewhere near” Craignure. The same will apply for the stretch on the mainland to Dalmally – it’ll be road hell on and off for two years!
The Tiree Array will also be visible from the road running down from Reudle; that amazing view of Beinn More, Gribun cliffs over the Ross to Iona and the Treshnish.

- David Hatrick’s feedback from competitors on Mach 1 Stages rally
At last our wonderful (NOT) Internet has allowed me to send/receive emails and get on the web, albeit with a considerable amount of drop-outs etc. I actually emailed Lynda about lack of coverage and understand why she had a last minute change of circumstances – she also knows she missed a fantastic event.
I came down from Mull to be a radio marshal and I’d like to say how impressed I was with DCC and the way they had obviously worked with all aspects of the local community and how the local community did so much. Seriously impressed with the number of locals who volunteered as marshals and did a great job – with special mention of the gentleman who worked with me on the Saturday – we weren’t far in the first stage before a bit of mayhem happened – repeatedly!
Yeah, there were some glitches but I defy anyone to stage something this big with so many issues involved for the first time and not have glitches or find things might have been done better. And yes, feedback was sought and has been fed back.
Aside from the awesome venue and organisation – what was lovely was the welcome and general good feeling encountered with locals – thank you.

- Local anxiety at Paul McCartney’s management company’s plan for timber haulage from his Kintyre farm
Tail-gating is NEVER acceptable; it is a stupid and dangerous way to drive so your comment about “the conditions” is unacceptable. So why didn’t you pull over and let the driver through at an appropriate passing place? There are plenty despite what you say. I’m afraid you’re sounding like the numpties who come over to Mull and don’t know the rules and insist no-one drives faster than 25mph. People living along these roads have work to do and need deliveries.
- Another Argyll and Bute councillor stands down
And why shouldn’t there be a hustings on Mull? Oban Community Council could have organised an event – all credit to Mull CC for having done so.
Frankly, all most of us want is a decent Councillor who will stand up – regardless of precious party politics – for the people of the Ward.
