Scalasaig port in the evening.

Scalasaig (Scottish Gaelic: Sgalasaig) is the main settlement on the island of Colonsay in the Hebrides of Scotland. It is home to the only port on the isle and thus tourists, who come by ferry, must pass through it on the way to any part of the isle. It contains the island's shop, post office, microbrewery, doctor's surgery, village hall, cafe and hotel/bar.
