View of Loch Nevis taken from Knoydart during a climb up a hill with the charming Gaelic name of Sgurr Coire Choinnichean. This translates as the peak of the mossy corrie, a corrie being the head of a mountain valley.
In the distance to the left of centre, across the Sound of Sleat, is the island of Eigg. To its right is another island, Rum. These pair of islands are the remains of the mantle of a single volcano that was active 60 millon years ago. There was another volcano on the Ardnamurchan penisular which is just visible on the extreme left. At this time North America was only a few hundred km away and has been moving away from us ever since.
