Kerrera

An exciting area on an island just SW of Oban. Open moorland running with interesting contour detail supported by patches of intricate rock features. Few man-made handrails but many natural ones aid navigation. On a clear day take time to look at the wonderful views over the Firth of Lorn to the Island of Mull.
