On my journey to Islay in April 2024 the weather was very nice and I had a bit of time left, so I decided to take the detour via the B8024 Kilberry road. It’s a winding single track road so obviously much slower than the main A83 (not to forget much longer). But on a nice day like I had you’re rewarded with some nice views like this, looking past some fresh spring green across the Sound of Jura to Islay.

A view from an Islay ferry on the way to Kennacraig. Jura on the horizon, below it a ship I had spotted earlier. After some picture searching I now believe it might be the Ronja Supporter.
