Probably the best known and most photographed red phone box on Islay, the one at the Sanaigmore/ Loch Gorm B8018 road junction. Here I was lucky enough to capture it with a bonus rainbow after a passing rain shower. Carnduncan in the background.
Time is finally taking its toll. While in 1998 the wreck of the Wyre Majestic (who ran aground in 1974) was still largely complete the strong currents in the Sound of Islay have finally managed to wear down the once proud ship and only a small section of the stern remains.
One of my oldest Islay pictures, taken during my very first visit to Islay in July 1998 (before digital cameras, scanned from a print). The Wyre Majestic ran aground at Rubha a’ Mhail near Bunnahabhain in October 1974, opposite the Paps of Jura on the other side of the Sound of Islay.
