There is a perfect tranquility about this shot and a real sense of atmosphere with a good cloud scape. The light picking out the settlements on the island evokes the idea of a destination to a magical place and the island form itself is neatly framed.

Here's a recent photo of the "Inner Lighthouse" on Holy Isle the Lightkeepers Houses are now a Buddhist retreat - you can see a Monk "contemplating" at the foot of the lighthouse!!
