Bottlenose dolphin below Beinn Mhor
The Mull of Oa tide race runs at 5 knots below the SW coast of the Oa peninsula Islay. Dolphins love to play in these currents. Submerged rocky reefs extend out from the headlands making it a treacherous coast for boats and there are no paths along the shore. Sea kayaking is just about the only way to get this view but requires a great deal of experience. Beyond the dolphin the great rock fin is Sgeirean Buidhe.
