A panoramic view looking north up the Sound of Islay from below McArthur’s Head lighthouse at the southern end of the sound. Jura visible on the other side of the sound with one of the Paps of Jura (I think Beinn a’Chaolais) in the distance.

An Islay walking week excursion to Islay’s neighbour Jura back in 2007, here the walkers are taking a break near Imir an Aonaich between Beinn an Oir (785m, behind the walkers on the right) and Beinn Shaintaidh (not in the picture, to the right). Beinn a’ Chaolais (733m) in the centre distance.

A memory from an Islay walking week excursion to Jura with a walk below the famous Paps of Jura (we didn’t go up this walk, but did climb Beinn a’ Chaolais during other walks). Beinn an Oir in the centre of the view.
