This evening I am presenting a couple of images of Finlaggan. This was the home of the MacDonald chiefs for almost 400 years, from the 12th to the 16th centuries. From this location, the Lords of the Isles ruled the Atlantic seaboard from Kintyre to Lewis..

Finlaggan is situated a few miles to the south-west of Port Askaig on the island of Islay.

Here is an image looking north towards the Isle of Jura with some friendly bovines looking on.

This is the actual site at Finlaggan-to the right of the picture.In the foreground is a prehistoric standing, stone.

Apart from Finlaggan, Islay is famous for its whisky distilleries and is well worth a visit.
