Panoramic picture of three mountains on an island seen across the seaA quite dramatic view of the Paps of Jura as seen from Carnan Eoin (143m) on Islay’s neighbour Colonsay. Beinn Shiantaidh (757m), Beinn an Oir (785m) and Beinn a’Chaolais (733m) from left to right. To the left of them also Corra Bheinn (573m).

Port Askaig and Caol Ila, Isle of Islay (seen from Jura)

Picture of two settlements at a sound between two islands, seen from a mountainA follow up to the Port Askaig, Keills and Bowmore seen from Jura picture I posted recently. There someone asked where Caol Ila was. This view from the summit of Beinn an Oir, the highest of the Paps of Jura at 785m, shows both Port Askaig and Caol Ila at the Sound of Islay with Keills further back inland. I’m not entirely sure what the loch on the top left is, but I think it’s Loch nan Cadhan.
