How I envy them their moment of freedom flying over the beautiful rocks and diving down into the sea. Perhaps not, I am sure it would be far too cold. Although in fairness it does look the part, we could be on a Caribbean Island with its golden sands.
The Lighthouse, which was built by David Stevenson to aid shipping in the 1860s and can be seen for miles around.
It is situated on the extreme North West tip of the Island and is an amazing place to view the many varieties of wildlife. Sadly the lighthouse was automated in 1998 and is not open to the public. The views never cease to amaze whatever the weather.
Work on the garden continues, a little at a time. The pots are stunning and such a beautiful array of colour. The moor too is a living thing and the changing colours as we go though the seasons is a joy to behold. Some of the wildflowers are spectacular and add to the beauty of this Island that I love to call home. Many of the craft enterprises on the Island have been influenced by the beauty of the landscape. I don't think I will ever tire of the rugged beauty.
I hope you enjoyed our mini tour and the ever changing landscape of this little Island. We are now making plans for some more little tours further afield.
See you soon.
