Siesta on Islay

Refreshed after our stop at Ardbeg, we made our way north east, hotly pursued by a fresh west wind.

We had covered leagues of ocean and were becoming exhausted by our exertions.

Just in time, we spotted an idyllic white shell sand beach which was sheltered from the wind by wooded slopes above.

We found ourselves in yet another stunning location with a view under brooding clouds to the great Sound of Jura..

On our travels we have been greatly inspired by tales of great Spanish navigators. Taking our lead from them, we decided it was time for a siesta!
