Picture of a red phone box next to the Macaulay and Torrie storeThe remaining red phone box in Port Ellen, outside Torries at the junction of Frederick Crescent and Lennox Street. I believe there used to be another one at the other end of the village, near the junction to the road past the malting and out to the Oa, outside Tighcargaman, but that’s long gone.

Solstice in Port Ellen, Isle of Islay

Picture of a fishing boat called Solstice at a pier in the evening sunNo, not that kind of solstice. A fishing boat called Solstice at the pier in Port Ellen. But then again I took this picture about 1.5 weeks before the summer solstice in June 2017. Also note the faint rainbow in the top right corner.
