Whale sculpture/mosaic, Isle of Colonsay

Image

Picture of a view at a whale sculpture/mosaic created out of stonesA fascinating art work on Islay’s neighbour Colonsay, created by artist Julian Meredith and continuously being improved by visitors. Visitors are encouraged to add stones from surrounding raised beaches (e.g. Balnahard) to the outline created by Julian. While you can see from ground level the best views are from nearby hills, here from Carnan Eoin.
