|My first climb up Malcolm's Head this year.|
Always leaving me breathless, then a breathtaking reward.
The stark beauty of Fair Isle.
|South Harbour & Crow Stack|
|The Keels and Skerries|
|Climbing up Malcolm's Head|
|View of Sheep Rock on the way up.|
|At the top of Malcolm's Head you find two ruins, |
both coastal look out observational huts. one from WW2 the other from the Napoleonic Wars.
|One of the old structure's walls, with an approaching hail storm.|
|This rainbow was actually pea size hail. |
Which I was shortly after this picture caught in.
Ouch! no place to hide!
|I would say it is a bit windy-er up there!|
|The setting Sun was in and out of the clouds creating great light and colour.|
|My hat blows off much easier with long hair.|
I never had this problem with a short buzz cut.
But I do like the feel of wind in my hair again, even if I have much less of it.
|The hail storm passed over and blocked the Sun,|
making it go so dark the Lighthouse came on early.
What a great walk, always a wonder when I wander. cheers.
Happy New Year!
