The boats were only able to go on one day during the week we were there as it was too windy and the sea too rough!

Amazing pictures Susie !
Elgol was a location used in the Lars von Trier's movie "Breaking the waves".

Fantastic pictures there Susie! Many thanks for sharing. Elgol is a wonderful spot, and Hebridean sunsets are unbeatable anywhere.
