St Ninian's Isle, the south end

We picked up Clare's mam yesterday from the airport and after a less than inspiring lunch (that left my wallet perspiring) at the Spiggie Hotel went to St Ninian's.

Only the second time we've been, it being way south from us, but a fantastic spot and still had it pretty much to ourselves even on a gorgeous saturday afternoon.

Oh, we had the usual accompaniment of a local black collie, but he asked not to be shown here.

As we arrived a yacht was moored in the north bay with a tender taking a few people ashore. After the treasure?

Beren was been annoying so his Nana threw him in the sea for us.

The terns were busy as ever

And we enjoyed a lovely view back to the mainland

We went for a trundle to the southern tip of the island this time, it is truely wonderful. Views out over Inns Holm and various other bays, beaches and islands, south to Fitful head. Yummy.

After taking in the view, the air and the sun we wandered back up to the chapel remains and who should we see spying on us?! Knew we shouldn't have taken him swimming last week...


  1. These places are astonishing. I do stand silent and admiring

  2. Yep, there are some pretty inspiring spots in the world :o)
