A popular stop on the journey to Islay, just a few miles from the ferry terminal in Kennacraig. An impression from a July evening a good number of years ago, looking across the harbour to the fishing boats, the ruin of the old castle on the hill above.

An October crossing on the MV Hebridean Isles to Islay. Looking back towards Argyll and Kennacraig we can admire the bright Moon up in the sky above a bank of clouds.

One of my favourite stops on the journey to/from Islay, the beautiful Ardkinglas Gardens. Especially during autumn with its amazing colours there are some amazing sights to be had.
