Maol Mheadhoin

An elongated hill in the southeast of the island of Islay in the Inner Hebrides, Maol Mheadhoin is situated 3 miles (5 km) east of Glenegedale. It has multiple summits, with the highest reaching 276m (905 feet). The Caol Abhainn and Uisge Cam Chanaidh rise on its western slopes and are both headstreams of the Glenegedale River. A Bristol Beaufighter aircraft crashed here on 12th September 1943 killing both of the crew. It had just taken off from RAF Port Ellen on a training flight.
