A different view of Loch Gruinart at Ardnave, not from the top of the dunes, not from the beach either, but from somewhere half way, from a gap in the dunes. It’s low tide in the loch with sandbanks visible almost all the way. Killinallan Point visible across the loch, also the tops of the Paps of Jura on the horizon.

A view north east from the Ardnave dunes, looking out over the mouth of Loch Gruinart at low tide. Killinallan Point visible on the other side of the loch. One of the Paps of Jura on the horizon behind the hills on Islay. Mala Bholsa visible in the distance on the left, Jura behind it.
