On a trip from Craighouse to the Corryvreckan we took a short detour into Lowlandman’s Bay, this picture was taken when we were just leaving. In the distance the three Paps of Jura towering over the view with Corra Bheinn (on the right) completing the picture. The building near the shore on the other side of the bay is the Sound of Jura studio.

Admittedly not a view you’d get with the bare eye, I used a fairly strong telephoto lens for this picture: The Paps of Jura (Beinn an Oir, Beinn a’Chaolais, Beinn Shiantaid) seen across Loch Indaal from Bowmore pier on a June afternoon.

On my detour from Evans Walk I climbed up to the summit of Corra Bheinn (573m), from where I had great views over two (the third was hidden from view from here) of the famous Paps of Jura. Beinn Shiantaidh (757m) straight ahead, Beinn an Oir (785m) behind it to the right. The Bay of Small Isles in the distance on the left. The entrance to Loch Tarbert just visible behind Corra Bheinn on the right.
