HeadLine: Drinks flow again at landslide pub

A pub wiped out by a landslide has re-opened complete with “theme”
Regulars at MacGochan’s in Tobermory on the Isle of Mull can now
indulge in special Muddy Slide and Rocky Falls drinks.
Just two months ago, the popular watering hole was wrecked when 4000
tons of mud and rock crashed through the roof after heavy rain.
But a speedy £220,000 rebuild meant it opened on Saturday in plenty of
time for next weekend’s Mull Music Festival.
Licence-holder Calum MacLachlainn, 34, said: “The place looks as good
as new now. It’s as if the disaster never even happened.
“Engineers say there is no chance of anything like this happening again.
“And there’s no truth in the rumour that customers are banned from
asking for Scotch on the rocks.”
