Loch an t-Siob and Paps of Jura

Mark Unsworth from Islay Studios sent me a trully stunning panorama picture from the Paps of Jura. Mark was planning on making this trip for several days and waited for the perfect conditions, which ultimately would be no wind for beautiful reflections in the loch which was frozen over as you can see. The loch in the picture is Loch an t-Sion and can be reached when you follow the river Corran opposite the road to Knockrome at the arched bridge. This is one of the most used tracks to access the Paps of Jura. The picture Mark took yesterday is the most beautiful image I have seen so far from the Paps and I'm grateful that he gave me permission to publish it on my blog. The bigger image will be posted later on Mark's Photoblog.


The mountain on the left is Beinn a Chaolais. Right-back is Beinn an Oir (Mountain of Gold), the highest of the Paps with 785m/2576ft and is the only Corbett. Right-front is Beinn Shiantaidh (The Sacred Mountain).
