Islay

Two superb weeks exploring Islay
Two superb weeks on the beautiful Isle of Islay in the Western Isles of Scotland. Great walking and wildlife. Over 74 species of birds were recorded and we even managed to see the wonderful Golden Eagle and the ellusive Corncrake. I have included some new images of the trip in the 2012 gallery and a few bird shots are in the feathered friends gallery. The weather was good we even had a week of sunshine, on the couple of rainy days we had we managed to visit a few of the fine whisky distilleries and to be honest when we left them we could'nt remember if it had been raining or not...well worth a visit.
