Saligo Bay from Turnaichaidh, Isle of Islay

Picture of a coastal landscape seen from a hillA slightly different view of Saligo Bay from one of the higher points on the Rhinns of Islay, Turnaichaidh (170m) just behind the Kilchoman Crags. Saligo Bay with Saligo cottage towards the left, the remains of the old radar installations in the centre, the track out to Smaull stretching out into the distance on the right. In the foreground you can see the Kilchoman road passing through, bordering the fields of Rockside Farm as well as Loch Clach a’ Bhuaile. And if you look very closely you can just about make out Dubh Artach lighthouse on the horizon.

Picture of a view out to sea from a hill, a lighthouse and a warship in the distance A view from An Carn (hill north of Bridgend) north across the dunes at Ardnave looking far out over the Atlantic. On the left is Dubh Artach lighthouse, just right of centre a warship (there was a NATO exercise taking place when I took this picture during the Islay walking week in April 2016) and to the right a distant island. I’m not sure which island this is, I think it might be Tiree.
