Skervuile lighthouse stands in the Sound of Jura between Jura and the Argyll mainland. On a clear day you can see it from the Islay ferry, but much better views can be had from Jura, like here from Ardfernal Hill.
Normally it’s moored at the other end of Port Askaig, below the old station, but on this sunny June afternoon the Islay lifeboat was tied up at the main pier.
A view from the slopes of Beinn Dubh, looking north over the Sound of Islay. Jura on the right. In the distance on the Islay shore you can just make out the small lighthouse at Carraig Mhòr. On the right the sailing yacht under spinnaker I had seen below the Paps earlier.
