Treasures of Britain; Duncansby Head

The Northeastern tip of Scotland is worth visiting for its cliffs (213 feet/65ms) with their colonies of seabirds and the caves, ridges, arches and bridges sculpted by thousands of years of erosion.

In 2005 we made a 4 week round trip through Scotland and made it all the way to Duncansby head and John O'Groats, it was a wonderful trip, well worth it! Sutherland is gorgeous. However, further on to the west it's very isolated. The crofters all moved on and abandoned their homes. A sad sight but in a way also a pretty one as nature has taken over.

Most photos are my own; The day we went on a boat trip to look a the stacks the weather was horrible! But the day after the sun was shining and we went for a walk to the stacks and the birds.
(Quality isn't all that good, it's made with an old digital camera, one of the first ones)
