A drone picture from June 2015, taken on a beautiful late evening from Kilchoman just before sunset. Just ahead the Coastguard Cottages towards the right, the reed beds where Corncrakes can often be heard (and with a lot of luck even be seen) stretching out in front and to the right of them. Loch Gorm, Islay’s largest freshwater loch in the distance behind the cottages. Saligo just visible in the distance on the left.

A July late evening view from the single track road leading up to Kilchoman church, looking towards Coull Farm and Cnoc Mòr (82m). The setting Sun behind some clouds and a heavy shower creates some dramatic colours. The Coastguard Cottages visible towards the right.
