Taken not long after leaving Craighouse pier for a trip to the Corryvreckan, a view of Beinn Shiantaidh (one of the Paps of Jura) towering over the northern end of Craighouse. I was staying in the white lower cottage on the right hand side of the four cottages for a week in June 2019.

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.

At the end of Evans Walk you reach Loch Tarbert. Close to the shore, right behind the beach, is Glenbatrick Lodge. Behind it Glen Batrick stretches out into the distance, Corra Bheinn (left) and Beinn Shiantaidh (right) at the end.
