A panoramic view of Port Askaig at the Sound of Islay, seen from the small pier of the fishing harbour. The lifeboat at its moorings on the left. The MV Isle of Arran at the main pier (although she left soon after to make space for the arriving MV Hebridean Isles) and the MV Eilean Dhiura at the small pier. The Paps of Jura in the distance on the right.
A moody November morning at the Sound of Islay, waiting on the ferry to depart for a day out in Jura. The Islay lifeboat (in the shade on the right) ready for its next callout.
Normally it’s moored at the other end of Port Askaig, below the old station, but on this sunny June afternoon the Islay lifeboat was tied up at the main pier.
