The Garvellachs form a small archipelago to the north of Scarba. They have been uninhabited for hundreds of years, although there are sheep. There is a ruined monastery and some beehive huts where the monks used to live in what must have been conditions of considerable privation.
This picture was taken last Friday, a glorious day with tremendous visibility. Even in this phone snap it is just about possible to make out a snow capped Ben Nevis in the distance.
