Very low tide in Machir Bay panorama, Isle of Islay

Panoramic picture of a very low tide in a bay with a beach

One of the lowest tides I can recall in Machir Bay, possibly the lowest I’ve ever experienced. On the left the wreck of the Patti sticking out of the sand, I estimate the water was at least 50 metres (one Olympic swimming pool I believe is the standard comparison) away. Normally it’s just a few feet away from the wreck at low tide. Taken on the last day of my June holiday on Islay.
