NR3047 : Ruins east of Grasdale, Islay

Ruins east of Grasdale, Islay
Ruins east of Grasdale, Islay, taken 6 years ago
There are many ruined villages and buildings on the Oa peninsula in south-west Islay. The population of this part of the island in 1830 was around 1500 - there's probably about a tenth of that number now! It is a very poignant experience to wander round this lonely, but beautiful, peninsula and think of times past and yet see the current living world all around which hasn't changed for centuries.
