A view from Beinn an Oir on a sunny but hazy June day. The summit of Beinn a’ Chaolais, the lowest of the three Paps Of Jura. Behind it the Sound of Islay with Islay itself stretching out into the distance, the Oa towards the left.

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.
