From Gills Bay ferry. The ferry cut its power and cruised past a small pod of Orca on the way across! Pretty special moment :)

Stephenson lighthouse with a second lower tower which used to house the foghorn, now a comms aerial. Half day group charter with fast ferry charters out of Burwick. Landed on rock slabs NE side. Very impressive tide race to and from.

Viewed from Duncansby Head so not a proper visit per se. Bottom end of rainbow visible over Muckle Skerry.
