Contrasting Islays

Here are contrasting images and pieces of news concerning different places with the same name. The island of Islay off the west coast of Argyll now has a new hide for bird-watchers on the RSPB Loch Gruinart Reserve and it is officially opened today; the Shetland oilfield of Islay some 87 miles east of Unst is producing its first supplies of gas.
