A view from an Islay ferry on the way from Kennacraig to Port Askaig, somewhere in the Sound of Jura. A massive cloud south-east of Islay is dumping a lot of rain.
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.
A view from the RIB on the way from Craighouse on Jura to the Corryvreckan whirlpool: A large Seal is resting on a rocky outcrop in the Bay of Small Isles, for a brief moment the Skervuile lighthouse in the Sound of Jura comes into view in a gap in the rocks.
