Views from Bunnahabhain Road on Islay

I've probably mentioned this a few times before and I don't mind saying it again, the road between Persabus and Bunnahabhain is one of the nicest roads on Islay. At dawn you can see the sun rising from behind the Paps of Jura, in spring and summer that is. It's a lovely road to cycle, walk or drive on and there are several points where you can stop and admire the ever changing views. At the end of the road you can visit Bunnahabhain Distillery and taste a nice dram, which is by the way one of the favourites of the locals. The views are rewarding irrespective of the weather, and wildlife such as buzzards, pheasants, roe deer, partridge and song birds are often easy to spot and if you're lucky you can see golden eagles. Below are a few views from this quiet and winding road which is best to be enjoyed on foot.
