Picture of a Calmac ferry cruising past a small fishing boat in very calm seasSpotted from near Laphroaig, the Calmac ferry MV Finlaggan on her way from Port Ellen to Kennacraig on one of the calmest days on Islay I can remember (a June afternoon in 2013). I think the wake shook up the fishing boat briefly before everything went calm again.
