A panorama of a view from Sgarbh Breac (364m), the highest hill in the north-east of Islay. The view is from the north-east to the north-west: On the far left Rhuvaal Lighthouse at the entrance to the Sound of Islay. On the other side of the sound Loch Tarbert can be made out cutting into Jura. The view continues over the Sound of Islay, the lower parts of Beinn an Oir (785m) and Beinn a' Chaolois (733m) can be seen on the Isle of Jura, their summits shrouded in the clouds. Loch a' Chnuic Bhric just above the shore, if you look closely you can also make out Lochan Gleann Astaile just the right of Beinn a' Chaolais in Gleann Astaile. Returning to Islay Bunnahabhain Bay with the distillery comes into view. Port Askaig is not visible from here, it is behind the low hills with Ardnahoe Loch. In the distance the southern end of the Sound of Islay with McArthur's Head. The highest hills on Islay with Beinn Bheigier in the south-east of the island are also covered in clouds. The view continues over the largely uninhabited north of Islay until Loch Gruinart comes into view in the distance. If you look closely you can just make out Nave Island off Ardnave Point. Finally on the far right end of the panorama you can see Mala Bholsa (127m) on the north-west shore.
