Pierhouse Sunset Gallery

We do get very excited about our sunsets here at The Pierhouse in Port Appin. Well, who can hardly blame us as we have a ring-side seat for the most spectacular sunsets all year round!

Just now, as we approach the Summer Solstice, the sun takes its time to set over in Kingairloch in Morvern on the other side of Loch Linnhe from the hotel. The sun disappearing from view is just the start of it though.....the colours then change through oranges, pinks and purples as it spreads across the sky. It's amazing to watch and can go on for several hours (well past my bedtime!!) Visitors often remark on just how long the light remains at this time of year here on the west coast.

We've set up some new image galleries on The Pierhouse website - with a Sunset Gallery specially to capture some images of these beautiful nights. We'd love you to share your photos with us too - all you need is a Flickr account to join in. Full details are online - take a look at the Sunset Gallery here>
