A picture from an Islay walking week excursion to the Isle of Jura. This is near Cnocbreac, two of the Paps of Jura in the haze in the background. Beinn a’Chaolais (733m) on the right, Beinn an Oir (785m, the highest of the Paps) on the left. A tiny glimpse of Beinn Shiantaidh (757m) between them if you look closely.
A group of walkers approaching the bothy at An Cladach during an Islay walking week a few years ago. The bothy is in a wonderful location at the southern end of the Sound of Islay, McArthur’s head just out of view behind the steep cliffs in the distance.
A panoramic view from the hills on the Oa looking east over large parts of the south coast of Islay. Kilnaughton Bay on the left, the beach just hidden behind the house on the far left. Port Ellen maltings and the former distillery warehouses just left of centre. Carraig Fhada lighthouse below, Port Ellen towards the right. If you look very close you can just make out Laphroaig distillery in the distance on the right.
