There are over 350 pictish/keltic stones and ruins in ine parish alone showing how lush and populated this area once was. In those days it had a) native woods esp. rowan which fed the bird population keeping the midgies to their native bogs not the heather heath caused by deforestation and the evil ,truly evil introduction of the desert animal sheep which unlike our native wood hog and deer prevent the native plants from growing.
That's why you see all these wee islands in lochs brimming with tree foilage ,thats what the whole area should look like. just buy trees please, then all the druid oaks will return anng with birch and mistletoe and holly. All native but like the young people gone away.
Surprisingly Keills is in VT's Data Base - such a remote place and difficult to get to. We had heard and read that Keills Jetty was the best place to see the Isle of Jura. The views over the waters - known as the Sound of Jura were fantastic, the cool blues of the waters mingled perfectly with the dark landscape and just enough clouds in the sky to create a perfect view. No one was here, just us, the day was perfect and despite the name 'Sound of Jura' there were none, save for the gentle whisper of a light wind and some bird song. The seascapes will reward your senses and the effort to get here will be well rewarded, I found it difficult to leave this place behind and move on away from this spectacular vista and honestly wished I could view this 'sound' every day.
