A few breaks in the clouds opening up over the Bay of Small Isles, seen during a November day trip to Islay’s neighbour Jura.

At the Jura road end

This is as far as you can drive from the crossing over the Sound of Islay, the end of the public road on Jura (I reversed my car from the car park, from where I took this picture, to get it next to the sign). It’s also the starting point for the long walk to the Corryvreckan whirlpool, well behind the hills in the distance. On the way you’ll also pass Barnhill, where Orwell wrote 1984.
