At last some decent weather when passing this area in spring meant we could call in on the way to Mull and see the Chequered Skippers at Ariundle where the burying beetle was trying to feast on a long-dead slow worm.

A day trip to Duart Castle provided excellent views of a number of Marsh Fritillaries.
