Picture of water swirling around the remains of a ship's frame on a beachA small scene taking place on Kilchoman beach dozens or even hundreds of time every day. After a wave came in the water retreats again, swirling around what remains of the frame of the Patti, wrecked on the beach many many years ago

June sunset in Lossit Bay, Isle of Islay

Picture of the sun about to set behind a headland at the end of a bayIf you prefer to see the sun dramatically sink into the sea when watching a sunset then Lossit Bay in June is probably not the best place for it on Islay. Simple reason being that (in June, other times of the year will be different) the sun sets too far north and disappears behind the headland at the north of the bay. For beautiful scenery and dramatic light (especially when the weather is like it was the evening I took this picture) it is still a fantastic place though.
