NM7307 : Sound of Luing

taken 7 years ago, near to Toberonochy, Argyll And Bute, Great Britain

Sound of Luing
Sound of Luing
The view westwards from a minor headland on the west coast of Luing, overlooking the Sound of Luing with the islands of Scarba [left] and Lunga [right]. The gap between the two is named as Bealach a Choin Ghlais and is often referred to as 'Little Corryvreckan' due to the strong tides and narrowness of the channel. Few yachtsmen would risk passing through this gap under sail, a motor being necessary to control a boat in 8 knot tides.
