Approaching Islay

This photograph, taken by Tom Baker, shows the Caledonian MacBrayne ferry's approach to the island of Islay. The southernmost island of the Inner Hebrides, Islay lies within the region of Bute and Argyll. It was recorded in Adomnan's 'Vita Columbae' that the Irish Saint, Columba, rested on the islands on his way to Iona. Today the island possesses approximately 3200 inhabitants and is famous for its whiskey.
