A sunny but hazy April afternoon on Islay’s neighbour Jura. The view is from the hills somewhere near Lagg, looking out over the Sound of Jura. Towards the left is Skervuile lighthouse, behind it slightly to the right a fishing boat. In the distance we first see the Isle of Gigha with Kintyre behind it in the haze.

A view from somewhere in Bowmore (unfortunately can’t remember where I took this picture) across some house roofs (somebody will probably recognise them and know where exactly they are) and over Loch Indaal to Port Charlotte on the Rhinns of Islay. Taken on a beautiful April afternoon over a decade ago.
