The Oa Channel is the stretch of water between the Mull of Oa on the Isle of Islay and the Giants causeway.
The Oa (Scottish Gaelic: An Obha) is a rocky region in the southwest of Islay, in Argyll, Scotland. It is a nature reserve. The area is almost an island. Ireland can be seen from the south peninsula on a clear day.
