Kilnaughton beach panorama, Isle of Islay

One of the most popular beaches on Islay, in particular with families, the beach in Kilnaughton Bay. Looking over to Port Ellen you can see the ferries come and go (or being berthed at the pier) as well as various other marine traffic. Also good views to Carraig Fhada lighthouse and on a clear day Kintyre (both not in the panorama though)
