Windy day, clear weather. Gannets diving in distance. Kittiwakes, fulmar. The common cormorant, or shag, stretching its wings on a rock. Today was the first time since doing this that I met another person "doing" trigpoints. I guess it took a trip of 700 miles to achieve that.

Clear day with great views across to the mainland. Hardly any wind but still rough as hell out to sea.

A rather desolate, windswept location. Nice to say i've been though.
