A small cairn someone had built near Kilnave on the shore of Loch Gruinart. Spotted during an Islay walking week walk many years ago. The dunes at Ardnave in the distance.
A view across Loch Gruinart from the Killinallan side. Seals are resting on the sandbanks visible at low tide, the dunes at Ardnave in the background.
