While I had hoped for a nice sunset when I went to Saligo Bay it unfortunately turned out rather cloudy that April 2014 evening. Still took a few pictures though as I quite liked the feathery colourful clouds above the bay.

A popular walk during the Islay walking week is the walk to the summit of Beinn Bheigier, the highest hill on Islay at 491m. While it was a bit hazy during our walk in 2014 we still enjoyed some great views. This view was as we were descending towards the south, looking over Ardtalla and the Southern Skerries.
