Evans Walk into Glen Batrick, Isle of Jura

Having walked up from the eastern side of Jura, passing Corra Bheinn and Loch na Fùdarlaich on the way, soon the view west opens up. Evans Walk enters Glen Batrick with Loch Tarbert in the distance, also Colonsay visible across the sea.

A panoramic view over the east coast of Jura from early on during Evans Walk, I’d estimate may be a mile or so from the road. The Bay of Small Isles left of centre, the Paps of Jura with Beinn Shiantaidh closest to us towards the right. Corra Bheinn (which I climbed on a detour from Evans Walk) on the right.

From Evans Walk (between the hill and the lochs) I took a detour up Corra Bheinn (573m), from where I had some great views. This view is in a north easterly direction along the north eastern part of Jura. The larger loch right below is Loch na Fùdarlaich, the smaller one to the left is Loch na Fùdarlaich Beag. Behind the ridge the top of Loch Tarbert almost cutting Jura in half is just visible. Mull on the horizon on the left. The mainland on the right.
