In the middle distance the small lighthouse at Carragh an t-Sruith on Jura. Behind it the north of Colonsay and in the far distance the Isle of Mull with Ben More (the only island Munro outside of the Isle of Skye).

A Buzzard is circling above the loch, probably utilising the thermals on a summer day on Islay.
