An amateur photographer from Lismore flew to Islay on Tuesday morning after winning the #myargyll competition.

Teenie Wilson’s stunning image of the sun setting over Glensanda quarry landed her a trip for two to the island, following a night at the Falls of Lora Hotel.

Teenie, who runs the Lismore post office and shop with her husband David, brought her sister, Linda Lawrie, who persuaded her to enter, and has never been to Islay before. ‘Watch out, Islay, here we come,’ Teenie said.

The competition, run in association with Wyvex Media and Argyll and the Isles Tourism Co-operative, sought to recognise why you think our region is such a fantastic place to live, work and visit through photography, video and prose.

Thanks to her winning photograph, Teenie won the autumn break for two on Islay, featuring an overnight stay at the Machrie Hotel, dinner and B&B in Bowmore’s Harbour Inn, a tour of Islay’s newest distillery, Ardnahoe, a boat trip with Islay Sea Adventures, travel via Hebridean Airways, based at Oban Airport, a night at the Falls of Lora Hotel in Connel, and an Oban walking tour.
