Mr Morrison, who has been driving an Argyll and Bute Council bin lorry for 16 years, is also on standby to help with gritting the roads in winter, so his photographs, all taken on his smartphone, capture the beauty of the islands in all seasons.

He said: “I started taking photographs about three or four years ago, when I got a half decent phone camera. All the photos are taken on my phone. It’s definitely not rubbish working on the bin lorry, I think this must be the most beautiful bin run in Britain.”

Hundreds of followers have joined his Facebook page, A Binman’s View Of Mull and Iona, to enjoy his pictures of sunrises, sunsets, beaches and wildlife.

He said: “I think my favourite picture is probably the one of the cows at Tiroran and I also like the ones of the sunrise, taken when I was driving back after gritting the road at Ulva Ferry.”
