Tannara Mor - 1

I've only been ashore on one of the Summer Isles: Tannara Mor. Someday I hope to set foot on 'An Cleireach' (Priest Isle), Isle Martin and Tannera Beag. As with most people, I first learned about the Summer Isles from the books of Fraser Darling. 

Over the next few posts we will explore some of Tannara Mor. We will start with two photos of the interior of the island. It is interesting terrain, dominated by two large lochs: Loch Ard and Loch Allt a' Mhuilinn. Loch Ard is very strange, one loch divided in two by a large humpy hill that has the look of being a man-made dun. The photos are a bit dark. It was a drizzly day, and a thick layer of gray cloud hovered over the sea.

Divided Loch Ard  - if the water level was higher the hill might be an island
