Machir Bay – Islay

Machir Bay

I am back in London today off to meet the new university students who are starting a history degree. It is grey and raining so here are a few photos of other beautiful beaches we visited in Islay reminding me of sunnier days walking with dogs. Machir Bay is on the far west coast of Islay – we got there is late afternoon and the light changed as we walked – it was spectacular. The beach was largely empty and the dogs had a great time racing up and down the beach.

PLaying with the frisbee in the good days before I careless tossed it into the sea - by accident I hasten to add.

At one end of the bay are some interesting rocks that we explored as the tide was fast coming in.

We stopped at Traigh Cill an Rubha Ban (I think this is what it is called) on the way. It is a large sand/mud flat by Bridgend. More walking and frisbee chasing …..
