One of my favourite classic views on Islay, the view towards Proaig with the hills at McArthur’s Head and the hills of Jura in the background, framed by the lone small trees on the shore.
I’m not sure what this once was, I’m guessing some kind of tide or water level indicator. We found it while walking at the bottom of the cliffs between McArthur’s Head and Proaig in the south east of Islay in April 2009.
A view of Proaig bay with the bothy in the converted old farm steadings. In the distance on the right a Calmac ferry is leaving the Sound of Islay on her way to Kennacraig on the mainland.
