SCOTLAND - PAGE 6 - (5-19/06/04)
More Scotland photos, on this page there are pictures from Seil Island and our evening dinner cruise to the island of Colonsay.
|The Atlantic Bridge in the photo on the left above. The bridge, also known as the Clachan Bridge was designed by Thomas Telford and built in 1792 to join the island of Seil with mainland Scotland.|
|Seil is one of the 'Slate' islands where slate was once extensively quarried. The photo on the left shows the small ferry terminal at Cuan where the ferry takes passengers and cars the short distance from the south of Seil to the island of Luing, shown in the photo.|
|Photos above are from our evening dinner cruise to Colonsay on Friday 11th June aboard the Caledonian MacBrayne ship 'Lord of the Isles'. The boat leaves Oban at 5pm, with our three course meal served on the way out to Colonsay, arriving back at 9:45pm.|
|Colonsay is a small island, only eight miles in length and has just over 100 inhabitants mostly living near the ferry terminal and main village, Scalasaig.|
