Barnacle Geese and the Machrie Hotel, Isle of Islay

Picture of Barnacle Geese grazing in a field, a country hotel and golf course in the distance in the backgroundAn Islay view that’s going to change a bit over the coming years: While the Barnacle Geese are likely to still feed in the field at times the Machrie Hotel in the distance will undergo significant changes and renovations. The chalets to the left I understand will be demolished once the work is complete (for now I hear they serve as accommodation for the builders while the project is in progress). From the main hotel building I believe only the front facade will remain and a completely new hotel will be developed behind it. Work on the golf course which was started a while ago is nearing completion now. Picture taken from somewhere on the High Road.

  1. Barnacle Geese in front of the old Machrie Hotel, Isle of IslayThis view looks rather different now (the picture is from April 2016), as the Machrie Hotel has been completely remodelled over the last few years. The Barnacle Geese are possibly still coming to the same field (if I remember correctly they often return to the same field for many years or even their whole life).

    This picture is a different take on a cropped picture I posted a while ago: Barnacle Geese and the Machrie Hotel, Isle of Islay. Which version do you prefer, the cropped view or the wider view with more sky and field?
