Not sure from where exactly I took this picture, but I think it was about 1-2 miles from Bunnahabhain distillery from the single track road along the Sound of Islay. Obviously the famous Paps of Jura on the other side, from left to right Beinn an Oir, Beinn Shiantaidh and Beinn a’ Chaolais.

While the regular Jura ferry was away for repairs/ maintenance in April 2023 the MV James took over to ferry vehicles and passengers across the Sound of Islay. Here she is at the pier in Port Askaig.

A beautiful view from Bunnahabhain pier in the north of Islay on a sunny April afternoon, looking across the Sound of Islay to Jura with the amazing Paps of Jura. I quite like the bright red painted mooring bollards, a nice touch of colour.
