Rathlin and Ireland from the Mull of Oa, Isle of Islay

One of the clearest views I’ve experienced across the North Channel from Islay to Ireland. Depending on how you measure it this is somewhere around 25 miles / 40 kilometres. The view is from the Mull of Oa on Islay across the North Channel. In the foreground you can spot Rathlin, behind it Ireland.
