SEA STACKS OF DUNCANSBY HEAD

Few places I've visited feel as wild and desolate as the awesome Sea Stacks of Duncansby Head (found at the far North Eastern tip of Scotland, beyond John O'Groats)

Hiking and then scrambling down the cliffs through driving sleet on this coldest and bleakest of winters days was a highlight of my year.

I love this place. To me these massive monuments seem to stand defiant against not only the brutal storms of the North Sea but time itself.

PULPIT ROCK IN A GALE

Pulpit Rock, at the Southern tip of Portland Bill, is pretty cool. It was created by quarry workers in the 1870s who took away the surrounding rock, to leave the edifice and the leaning stone standing alone to represent an open bible resting against a pulpit.
