Seen across the Sound of Islay from Feolin on Jura, an old ketch (unfortunately I don’t know her name) passing Caol Ila distillery.
Normally it’s moored at the other end of Port Askaig, below the old station, but on this sunny June afternoon the Islay lifeboat was tied up at the main pier.
The scene in the Sound of Islay as it presented itself when I left after my summer holiday in June 2019. Five different ships/boats in view, going about their business. From left to right: The Jura ferry MV Eilean Dhuira on her way to Port Askaig. The MV Scot Isles on her way south. A tender ferrying passengers from Port Askaig to the cruise ship (OK, you have to look closely for this one). The cruise ship MS Ocean Endeavour anchored in the sound (having anchored in Loch Indaal in June 2018). The offshore supply ship Olympic Intervention IV off Rhuvaal in the far north of Islay.
