The Islay lifeboat Helmut Schröder of Dunlossit II passing Carragh an t-Sruith lighthouse on Jura while returning to Port Askaig from an exercise.
A view south down the Sound of Islay from Rubha a’ Mhill near Bunnahabhain on an overcast April day. McArthur’s Head just visible in the haze in the far distance.
I should think it’s well over a 100 years since this cannon was pointed at a ship in anger (if it ever was), now this very old cannon is standing outside the old RNLI station at Port Askaig at the Sound of Islay. The still quite new departing MV Finlaggan below the Paps of Jura in the distance.
