Visit to Orsay off the Rinns of Islay

One of the places near Islay I haven't been to yet is Orsay, the small island at the southern tip of the Rinns of Islay. While just a short distance from Portnahaven and Port Wemyss a boat is required for a visit. Thanks to Becky Williamson we can now at least go on to a short virtual visit to Orsay and the Rinns of Islay lighthouse:

A few days ago Becky added a set Orsay Island, Islay to her Sgeir Mhor photostream on Flickr. 40 pictures of the island, about 1/3 of the wildlife, 1/3 of the lighthouse and 1/3 of the island and the area. Having only looked the other way so far I find the views from Orsay over to Port Wemyss and over to Portnahaven quite interesting. The closer look at Orsay lighthouse is also interesting, a very different perspective.

One day I hope to visit Orsay myself, looks like an interesting place to visit with great views!
