The Crinan canal is always a nice stop on a journey to Islay, especially if there’s enough time to go all the way to Crinan. Here’s a nice old wooden boat moored off Crinan on a July late afternoon. I’m not entirely sure, but I think those are Jura (on the left) and Scarba (on the right) in the distance, with the Gulf of Corryvreckan in between.
During a visit in summer 2013 my sister and I went for a walk around the north coast of Islay, among other places seeing Rhuvaal lighthouse. We also walked through the arch below the lighthouse.
Probably one of the best days out you can get from Islay and Jura, a trip with a RIB to the famous Corryvreckan whirlpool between Jura and Scarba. Here the RIB is approaching some of the currents with Scarba in the background.
