A view north from the old radar station at Kilchiaran on an October morning with changeable weather on Islay. Right below us is Machir Bay with Kilchoman beach. In the distance Saligo is just visible. Also Loch Gorm to the right. And not to forget, a few sheep in the foreground.

Coastguard Cottages and Loch Gorm from the air, Isle of Islay

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.
