More locations to try and identify

More locations to try and identify for those who like such things.

 

First, not a great photo but it is now niggling at me that I can't track down the location.

I have absolutely no proof but it has that "West Coast of Scotland" look. Probhably miles out 😜

 

 

Same thought here though probably not too far north given the houses with two storeys. The number of cars suggests a beach or some other attraction, I'd imagine a small harbour just behind the houses in the foreground. And I'm imagining a nice old fashioned pub somewhere in the mix....

 

Maybe the number of cars has something to do with boats leaving here for day trips out to islands?

I had a look at Pennon the local hero location but no. The architecture certainly has a Scottish vibe.

I was thinking thats the back of a small hotel or pub with car park, the beach appears to be on the left which my bizzare logic puts it West Coast and the television aerials are pointing inland so to speak.

I’ve been up the west coast and also Moray Firth fishing villages, can’t place this. Northern Ireland coastal village?

 

 

I've been up and down on Google Maps and agree with you! 

 

Somebody will recognise it I expect.

This is the Isle of Whitehorn as seen from the Harbour masters Office.

Amazing, well done! 

 

How did you find it?

 

Though I don't think that the houses in my pic are Low Isle House. Looks like the cars are parked outside the Post Office and shops. So we got the rough general location but I was totally wrong about other things.....

 

Thanks all. That's my 'to do' list nice and tidy for now. 😃

I agree its not Low Isle House. Got a bit carried away! And my spellings rubbish, 'tis Isle of Whithorn not Whitehorn.

 

How did I find it?  Sometimes ASD comes in handy.

 

Stay safe.

This forum never ceases to impress me. No matter what the question there is someone who has something to contribute.

 

 

You have been extremely helpful Colin. I won't forget all that help you gave me over the aerial pics of the Alps!.You named every feature, valley, glacier, peak in existence!
