Saturday Islay Picture

Huh? ‘Saturday Islay Picture’? What's that? Shouldn't that be the Friday Islay Picture? You're right, the regular feature is on Fridays. But this picture is a direct follow up to yesterdays Friday Islay Picture (25). It's the same view coming into Port Ellen past the maltings, only this picture was taken today:

For a better comparison I've cropped yesterdays picture for a closer look to where the Islay Hotel still stands. Quite a gap in the silhouette now:

To my knowledge the new building for the new hotel will look similar to the original, although it will not be as high as the old building. I've received a few more pictures from the demolition of the old Islay Hotel, not sure yet if I find the time to post them today. If not I'll hope to catch up tomorrow.
