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.
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.
