The view from Sgurr Mor
The view from Sgurr Mor
A splendid view of the apparent peninsula between Loch Morar (left) and Loch Nevis (right). Actually there is a narrow and low-lying strip of land at the far end of Loch Morar which connects Mallaig (NM6796) to Arisaig (NM6686). Loch Morar is actually a freshwater loch, though only about 10m above sea level: Loch Nevis (no connection with Ben Nevis except for the name) is a true sea loch.

In the far distance, slightly left of centre, the island of Rum can just be seen.
