Round Church, Bowmore, Islay, Scotland490 viewsTaken from one of the side streets. During the 2010 Feis Ile trip I was able to take a shot, that I liked, from near the water and looking back up the hill toward the church.

Grave marker near Outback Gallery, Sanaigmore, Islay, Scotland444 viewsStone is inscribed: Here he lies where he longed to be, home is the shepherd home from the hill; David Peter Pearce.
The inscription is a paraphrase of RLS "Requiem". This is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. If you ever visit Islay, the Outback Gallery is worth the drive.

Laphroaig distillery from just outside the "peat fire"325 viewsA rather dreich (dreary) day. We were touring the distillery and I stepped outside for a moment.
This information is from Wiki: "The meaning of the toponym is unknown but a commonly suggested derivation implies the elements "lag" (Gaelic: hollow), "breid" (Norse: broad) and "vik" (Norse: bay), implying an original Gaelic form something like "Lag Bhròdhaig" (the hollow of Broadbay). The name may be related to a placename on the east coast of Islay, "Pròaig", again suggested as meaning "broad bay"."
