A panorama of a view over the north coast of Islay as well as Oronay, Colonsay, Mull and the Isle of Jura. The view is from a point just west of Rhuvaal, although Rhuvaal isn't visible from here.

On the left is Beinn Thrasda (not very high with 262m). Looking into a west south westerly direction the raised beaches stretch out to Bholsa with the round shaped hill of Mala Bholsa (127m). Closer and almost directly below is Bàgh an Dà Dhoruis with its beach, slighty further out are the Post Rocks. On the horizon first Oronsay and then Colonsay come into view. Initially behind Colonsay but then in better view despite the haze you can make out the Isle of Mull in the distance. And finally the Isle of Jura, Islay's closest neighbour, comes into view. Hiding behind the hill (Cnoc na Faire, 93m) are Rhuvaal Lighthouse and the entrance to the Sound of Islay.

You can navigate by pointing your mouse over the panorama and moving it while pressing the mouse button. You can zoom in/out with the +/- controls just under the panorama. Some areas in the panorama are hotspots, if you move your mouse pointer over them a short explanation will show in the status bar of the panorama window.
