From Killinallan towards the base of Bholsa, Islay.

...and back to blogging the Islay trip ...This time approaching Bholsa from Killinallan. A walk of twenty miles plus a little. Lots of dark green fritillaries, common blues and meadow brown butterflies, common lizards and a dead ferret! Apparently ferrets are on the island - introduced in the 1980s but it was unusual to find one so far away from the two main (declining) feral populations.

Spectacular coastal scenery. 

Common blue, garden tiger, common lizard and dark green fritillary.
