Northern Sound of Islay from Beinn Dubh

A view from the slopes of Beinn Dubh, looking north over the Sound of Islay. Jura on the right. In the distance on the Islay shore you can just make out the small lighthouse at Carraig Mhòr. On the right the sailing yacht under spinnaker I had seen below the Paps earlier.

Sailing yacht under spinnaker in the Sound of Islay

Seen from the slopes of Beinn Dubh, a sailing yacht making her way north in the Sound of Islay under a red spinnaker (which the crew had hoisted only minutes before I took this picture, good timing by them!). The Paps of Jura tower over the scene, dwarfing the yacht.
