Mabou Mines Coast

Mabou Mines Coast
Photo 15 of 25: Mabou Mines Coast
Taken 2007 August 12 from the water off Finlay Point

About half of this photo overlaps the previous one. The locality of Mabou Mines lies at the left of the photo, inland of the cliffs; it is today reduced to a shadow of its former self, though some year-round residents remain. The great unnamed mountain over which Mountain Road runs is in full view at the right; while not so sharply as Beinn Alasdair Bhain, this mountain also drops steeply to the sea, impeding communication between Mabou Harbour and Mabou Mines. Beaton Point is beyond the far right of this photo, outside its scope.

This concludes the set of photos of the coast from Sight Point to near Beaton Point taken from the water; I hope you will agree with me that it is one amazingly beautiful coast! My sincerest thanks go to the fishermen who make their boats and their time available each year for the stunning views of this gorgeous area.
