I thought that was the bit near Yesnaby Castle for a moment there! 🙂 Great pic.

Thank you! It is very much like Yesnaby and the coast along there, yes!

It is an odd thing, how few people seem to walk along there. As I mentioned, I’ll be putting together a longer piece about the walk that way, including what I’m pretty sure is the inspiration for skeleton island in Treasure Island (as well as other parts that resemble descriptions in said book). I would have dearly loved to have listened to the tale young Robert Louis Stevenson was told by Margaret Newlands aka Peggy Sue – I wonder how much of those stories were woven into his own. I’ll find a link for you…
