Islay and Jura from Oronsay

A view from the track to Oronsay farm and priory, looking over to Islay (towards the right) and Jura (towards the left). Eilean Ghaoideamal in the mid distance. If you look closely you can just make out Rhuvaal lighthouse at the far northern end of Islay right in the centre of the picture.
