Picture of a red phone box near a playground in a coastal locationIslay’s most northerly red phone box can be found in Bunnahabhain (at least for now). Left of centre, behind the slide, you can make out some roofs of Bunnahabhain distillery (I’m not sure if the building behind the swings belongs to the distillery or the village). In the distance on the left Sgarbh Breac, at 364m the highest hill in the north of Islay.

Red phone box at Caol Ila, Isle of Islay

Picture of an old style red phone box at a small road going down a hill to a sound between two islandsI had hoped to get the distillery into view, but couldn’t really find an angle to show Caol Ila distillery in any way. So instead you can catch a glimpse of the Paps of Jura on the other side of the Sound of Islay in the distance. Also one of Mundell’s lorries coming up the hill. I’m not sure where the door of the red phone box was at the time, what I do know is that it was getting a fresh coat of paint when I took the picture in April 2017.
