Every week the Gazette invites readers to send in their photographs of the islands for the Beautiful Island section of the paper.
Look out for them on the letters page and online.
Visiting the Outer Hebrides on a hopscotch ticket with his campervan Yorkshire photographer Tony Fickes took this image on the Oban Crossing.

If you would like to submit a photograph to our ‘Beautiful Islands’ feature email firstname.lastname@example.org.
