Callum Black took this Geograph Project photograph of the large house at Gallanach on the west side of Coll. It was one of the homes of a remarkable man, J Kerr Elliot, who died last year. His obituary in The Scotsman includes references to his management of the 4000 acre estate on the island and one of its successes, producing daffodil bulbs for export.
