The Garvellachs

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.
