A different take on the Mull and Colonsay from Sanaigmore view I posted a few years back, this time taking in more from the Islay side of the view.

Calm and choppy waters at the Gulf of Corryvreckan, Isle of Jura

A view of contrasts at the Gulf of Corryvreckan, driven by the Corryvreckan whirlpool: “Calm” waters in front of us (although it is still moving with strong currents) with quite choppy waters right behind. This scenery was constantly changing, with calm waters turning into strong eddies and currents and vice versa. An amazing sight, difficult to capture in a picture, much better experienced in person.

The Isle of Mull visible on the horizon.

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.
