Eagles are big birds, but nature is even bigger, far bigger. So to spot one you still need to look quite closely to see it. Here’s one spotted from the ferry travelling up the Sound of Islay to Port Askaig, flying past Dunlossit House (not in the picture. The flag pole is in the grounds, at the foot of it one of the old cannons).
Some Islay walking week walkers enjoying their lunch outside An Cladach bothy, overlooking the Sound of Islay (not in the picture, for it is behind the photographer)
A panoramic view from above Loch a’ Chnuic Bhric on the Isle of Jura, looking across the Sound of Islay to Islay. Caol Ila distillery in the distance on the left, Bunnahabhain distillery on the right.
