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.
This image shows an otter relaxing in Loch Ba Greagorry and was taken by Shelagh Davies, Lochboisdale.
If you would like to send in your beautiful photos of the islands please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tell us your name, where you are from and what inspired you to take the image, as well as any technical information about the picture.
Images should be around 1MB and in jpeg format.
