A memory from back in 2003, when there was scaffolding around Carraig Fhada lighthouse. I assume it was for painting and maybe other repairs. A Calmac ferry in the distance, I believe the MV Hebridean Isles.

A drone view of Carraig Fhada lighthouse and the cliff path out to it with Port Ellen behind it in the distance. The Port Ellen maltings on the left with the smoke clearly visible. Texa visible in the distance on the right. And yes, that’s me with the red shirt in the foreground, piloting the drone back in 2015.
