An overcast June day on Islay, a nice old sailing ship moored in the calm bay at Port Ellen.
A view from the Islay ferry arriving in Port Ellen, looking over to the old Port Ellen distillery and the modern Port Ellen maltings. The Thalassa, a regular visitor to Islay, is moored just off them.
I had hoped to see her under sail, but it wasn’t meant to be. This is the Flying Dutchman, a regular visitor to Islay and Jura, spotted in the Sound of Jura motoring north. We were on a RIB returning to Craighouse (where we had passed the Flying Dutchman when we left) from the Corrycreckan whirlpool.
