Firth of Lorne

I am never exactly sure where the Firth of Lorne starts and finishes, but let's cheat a bit and say it starts at Crinan at the top of the Sound of Jura in the east, and around Scarba in the west, from where it stretches north to Lower Loch Linnhe, so it includes Oban but not Dunstaffnage — so that is how it is going to be in this guide. Of course in a sense it includes at least the southeast coast of Mull but that is described separately. The whole area is steeped in ancient Scottish history what with the monks from Ireland and the first Kings who made their capital at Dunadd near Crinan.

"The Firth of Lorne is a glorious sheet of salt water, fed by the mighty tides of the Atlantic, and forming, both on the islands and on the mainland, a line of sea-coast not easily matched for loneliness and beauty. Numerous islands, large and small, stud the waters, forming narrow passages through which the tide boils with terrific fury." Robert Buchanan 1871
