Painting the Rocks…

The annual ritual at Bruichladdich.


Ardnahoe Distillery

Visited Islay’s ninth and newest distillery today for the first time. Nice stock in the shop and very decent tea and cake in the café. Also a great view from the balcony. Shame it was absolutely Baltic!


Kilchoman Beach

Absolutely stunning day on Kilchoman Beach – so warm and still…


Found ‘Kate’s Rockpool’, named after my colleague Kate who went swimming in it this week, even though it must have been freezing…


…glad she also explained that the local farmers plough the beach to sharpen their ploughs, or I would have been flummoxed by this pattern in the sand:


Hope this superb weather holds for a few more days  :0)
