Height and Depth

This is the summit of Eorsa, some 321' above sea level or to be precise, above Loch na Keal, Mull. The view from the hills shows the islet just below the channel used by the Ulva Ferry.

The dramatic photograph below by Carl White evokes something of an era - during the First World War - when a British fleet would assemble in the deep loch and Atlantic convoys begin their voyages from there.
