Eigg from the Ardnamurchan Peninsula

Eigg is one of the Inner Hebridean islands, lying around 7 miles off the mainland. Its highest point is the conical peak of An Sgurr, a large residual mass of columnar pitchstone lava. Eigg's northern cliffs at Bay of Laig and Camas Sgiotaig are of a pale sandstone that erodes into curious shapes. The low-lying southern ground overlies basalt.
