Friday Islay Picture (47)

Picture of a lighthouse on the other side of a small sound, a rocky shore in the foreground

After a nice hot chocolate earlier followed by a nice wee dram of Laphroaig Quarter Cask I now feel sufficiently relaxed enough to move on to this evening's Islay blogging. As it is Friday evening this obviously means the Friday Islay Picture. I think it's been a while since I last posted a portrait format picture, but this view really lends itself to the format: The Rinns of Islay Lighthouse on Orsay, seen from the shore in Port Wemyss.

Again there is a reason why I picked this picture: Earlier today I was looking through the pictures of Flickr user calum57. I'm not sure what exactly he does for a living, but it seems to be related to the Northern Lighthouse Board and involves flying to lighthouses with a helicopter. On these flights he takes some fantastic pictures of lighthouses, including the ones on or around Islay:

His other pictures are quite nice as well, you might just want to look through them. Not of Islay, but various other places (mainly lighthouses) around Scotland.

That's all for this evening. The weather forecast looks quite nice (although very cold) for most of the UK this weekend, have a great and sunny weekend, whereever you are and whatever your plans are!
