A welcome landmark when you arrive by ferry in Port Ellen Islay is the beautiful Carraig Fhada lighthouse. It has a unique design and consists of two attached square towers. The Carraig Fhada lighthouse was commissioned by Walter Frederick Campbell in 1832 to commemorate Lady Ellenor Campbell to whom the village of Port Ellen across the bay was named after as well. The pictures in the rotating gallery were taken on a very quiet morning in April when the sun was trying it’s best to burn away the clouds. It did not succeed but the soft light through the milky clouds was breathtaking.
