Back in spring last year I journeyed out to the Corryvreckan Whirlpool with Seafari Sea Adventures and wrote about my experience for Airdeny Chalets. It was a wonderful wildlife boat trip despite the very grey weather that clung to the afternoon. At the end of last month, we took a trip back to the Isle of Seil on a beautiful sunny day and enjoyed the landscape of this former slate island wrapped in the winter sunshine.
I wandered around the pretty village of Ellenbeich, drinking in the last dregs of sunlight that danced around the island-dotted seascape and taking photos of the slate-adorned scenery.
If you’re on the Argyll coast and want to visit the Isle of Seil or the Isle of Easdale, a short boat ride from Seil, it’s around a half hour (scenic) drive south of Oban, crossing the ‘Bridge over the Atlantic’ that connects Seil to the mainland.

Gorgeous photos, Emma! I love the Isle of Seil and have such happy memories of it. Lots of holidays spent there. Your pics make me want to head back over there right now! And the bridge is just so picturesque.
Thank you Jo! It is such a beautiful island, I loved both my visits. Must be a lovely, peaceful place to holiday.
