There is nothing like a good new year walk to blow away the cobwebs after the excesses of the festive season.

This week’s Photograph of the Week shows one of the best locations in Kintyre for one of those walks – The Gauldrons, at Machrihanish.

The image, taken at sunset in November, was recently sent in by Alan Ogg, who said: ‘It just captures, for me, this wonderful stretch of beach.’

Alan, who lives in Glasgow, met his wife in Machrihanish in 1967 while they were working in the Ugadale Hotel as a waiter and a porter, and it became their ‘favourite place on Earth’.

Alan said: ‘I come down to this beautiful area a few times each year. My wife passed away three years ago but I still get great comfort from coming back to Machrihanish, and particularly the Gauldrons where we spent many happy hours.’
