That’s right there is a whale on Colonsay. It lies just a few metres from the shore, besides the track to Balnahard.
This is a wonderful open air art installation that is being built by visitors and we had to add our weight to the ‘sculpture’. An artist mapped out the framework of the whale using local stones and the public have been asked to help complete the installation by filling in the gaps, of which there are still plenty.
So simple, so effective. Not only that but the Colonsay to Oban flight path goes directly overhead and it must leave a striking impression. I loved it.
So remember, if passing, try to add a stone or two to enable this work to be completed.
