World of Supercars at Knockhill

A couple of pictures from the World of Supercars Event at the Knockhill Racing Circuit in Scotland on the 23rd of July 2017.


A McLaren P1 (Carbon version) in the main paddock area drawing most the attention in the rain for that part of the day.


Martini Racing liveried Porsche 911 GT3 arriving back in the paddock after a parade lap while the sun appears for the first time during the day.


One of the other main attractions at this event was the Lamborghini Huracan Performante in bright yellow, showing what a super car should look like.


The event also allowed various car owners to show off their cars round the track at Knockhill, in this picture a Porsche 911 GT3 RS & 911 Carrera are seen exiting the hairpin onto the main straight on the circuit.


Of course, at a super car event you can’t miss out on a picture of a Ferrari.  In this image a Ferrari 458 is seen accelerating away from the hairpin along the main straight on the circuit.



Ferry to some Small Islands

Rather than driving around the explore new parts around Scotland, I took the option to explore this time by boat to get to those even more remote places.

The ferry that I took was the ‘Calmac‘ Oban – Coll – Tiree – Oban ‘service’ which took roughly 7 and a half hours.  The boat which I sailed on was ‘MV Clansman’

The first picture from this trip comes from passing Eilean Musdile Lighthouse whilst looking towards the Scottish Mainland and Loch Linnhe;


The next image comes from passing through the ‘Sound of Mull’ with the mainland coming from the left and the Isle of Mull just seen on the right;


The first stop of the day was at Coll which is an island with a population of around 150, the picture here was taken on board the boat whilst it was loading at the port with the water showing various different colours.  The main island of Coll was behind where the picture was taken;


The next stop was at Tiree with this picture looking into the ‘harbour’ of the island and across part of the island;


Heading back to Oban, I took this picture not long before the sun started to set looking towards the horizon of the Atlantic Ocean;


The final image from this trip comes from passing back through the Sound of Mull at sunset as the sun begins to dip behind the Isle of Mull itself;


These are only a few of the 300 or so pictures I took from this small trip, the next plan for a trip like this would be to get off the ferry and go onto these small islands to explore them.
