Seen from Ardfernal Hill (Cnocan Soilleir, 85m) on the east coast of Jura, a June sunset behind the Paps of Jura (and Corra Bheinn on the right).

On a spur of the moment decision I climbed Corra Bheinn (573m) while my original plan had been to just complete Evans’ Walk to Loch Tarbert (which I still did). It was well worth it. The views of in particular Beinn Shiantaidh (757m) were fantastic on a brilliant June afternoon. In this view I also quite liked the two large boulders which at some point must have come down the hill before coming to rest here.
