Stunning Islay Aerial Images

Islay Pictures in stencil

Regular readers will be familiar with my fascination of Islay from the air pictures. This morning I came across a set of stunning pictures from a flight from Inverness across the western Isles and of course most interesting to me Islay, Jura and Colonsay.

Via a blog entry Aerial Images from Bank Holiday Monday flight Inverness/Great Glen/Ben Nevis/Mull/Skye/Colonsay/Islay/Cumbernauld we find the corresponding Picasa album 30 08 2010 Selections from flight to Oban Islay and Cumbernauld from Inverness. The Islay, Jura and Colonsay pictures are towards the second half of the album, you might have to scroll down a bit to get to them. Let me point out a few of my highlights:

Nuckle mountains - The Paps of Jura is a great one to start with, a view across the entrance to the South of Islay with the Paps of Jura and even Mull in the distance. Then there's Loch Indaal and Rhinns of Islay and to the other side Bowmore. And there's Kiloran Bay on Colonsay, as photogenic from the air as it is from the ground.

These four are only a tiny selection, I can highly recommend to view the whole album from start to finish. You also get to see some stunning views of Ben Nevis, the Great Glen and even Skye. I hope you'll enjoy them as much as I. Thanks to Coldwaterjohn for sharing them!
