A view from the RIB on the way from Craighouse on Jura to the Corryvreckan whirlpool: A large Seal is resting on a rocky outcrop in the Bay of Small Isles, for a brief moment the Skervuile lighthouse in the Sound of Jura comes into view in a gap in the rocks.

Skervuile lighthouse stands in the Sound of Jura between Jura and the Argyll mainland. On a clear day you can see it from the Islay ferry, but much better views can be had from Jura, like here from Ardfernal Hill.
