Friday Islay Picture (35)

That's a long week over. A busy but exciting week. Spot The Whisky Barrel finally went live. And while I was watching the Laphroaig Live event England followed Scotland's example and failed to qualify for Euro 2008. Here in Swindon at IslayBlog HQ it has been very wet and horrible early in the week, now it is clear and dry, but very cold. In Port Ellen on Islay it was quite cold earlier today but seems to have warmed up later with some clouds moving in. With all that wintry weather I've decided to go for a picture of a sunny Islay in the summer:

Picture of a view over a sea loch with some high mountains in the background

This was on a very clear June morning, the view is from the eastern end of Bowmore over Loch Indaal to the Campbell Monument at the top of the loch. The Paps of Jura are towering over the landscape in the background. The houses are the ones on the road to Mulindry. I quite like these views with the Paps in the background, as if they are on Islay yet knowing that they are on the next island.

With that thought I'll leave you for tonight, have a great weekend wherever you are and whatever the weather might bring!
