Beinn Tart a' Mhill is the highest point on Rinns of Islay, the peninsula on the west side of Loch Indaal. There is a communication mast close to the summit, but they have been wise enough not to place it on the actual summit.
From the summit of Beinn Tart a' Mhill you will have a good view of most of the Islay and Jura mountains, on a clear day.
The name means "mountain of drought".
