A view inland from the highest dune at Saligo Bay, looking the opposite way from the dune and beach panorama. The Paps of Jura nicely visible in the distance in the beautiful June evening light.

A June evening (on the longest day of the year to be precise) on the west coast of Islay, on the dunes overlooking Saligo Bay. I believe this dune is the highest of the dunes along the bay, providing great views across the bay, coast and also the inland.

The floods at the top of Loch Gruinart are mostly populated by birds, but sometimes other animals can be spotted as well, like this deer. It was mostly picking its way through on the higher parts, avoiding the lower areas.
