Everest to Gometra
Gometra is joined to Ulva by the bridge pictured below. This off-shore Mull island of almost 6000 acres appealed to the leader of the 1933 and 1936 Expeditions to Mount Everest, Hugh Ruttledge (1884 - 1961). He secured ownership soon after returning home for the second time, preferring life at sea level to high altitudes. In 1950 his wish for a different location led him to buy a property on the edge of Dartmoor.
