As most islands in the Southern Hebrides have hills it will be relatively simple to get good views of the neighbouring islands. But which hill should you climb to see the most islands of the Southern Hebrides? It would be somewhere in the centre and it has to be high so automatically I would assume that one of the Paps of Jura would qualify for the best all around views of the other islands. Another alternative would be Ben More (945m) on the Isle of Mull. A third option would be the highest hill on Islay, Beinn Bheigeir (491m). As I have only been on the latter I can confirm that you can actually see most islands of the Southern Hebrides on a clear day. The ones I could identify on a rather clear day were: The Isles of Jura, Gigha, Colonsay and Mull and on an extremely clear day the view could theoretically include Iona, Coll and Tiree as well. The picture below was taken yesterday and shows the Isle of Jura and Paps of Jura from the trig point of Beinn Bheigeir, a highly recommended 4 to 5 hour walk over rather good terrain with starting point at Claggain Bay on islay’s east coast.
