Picture of a group of walkers on a track near a wide open landscapeAn impression from an Islay walking week a number of years ago, some of the walkers taking a short break on the track between Killinallan and Gortantaoid. In the distance a panoramic view of the hills in the north of Islay. On the left, behind the walkers, are the dunes and beach at Tràigh Baile Aonghais.
