A stunning night, the light was fantastic and it was warm with hardly a breeze, often fantastic light in Scotland but it is usually quite cool by 19.30 and normally a definite breeze if not a gale blowing.

I only had time to grab my small camera which was to hand before the light changed.

Hawaii in the Outer Hebrides

We did not see any one on this stunning beach on Harris, how different they would be if the weather was like the South of England never mind Hawaii. We were priviledged that day!

Fulmar, St Kilda

Related to the albatross these birds looked great in flight but I was too much of a wimp and didn't like hanging over the cliff, so never got a decent shot.

Guillimots, Outer Hebrides

More pictures from the Stacs this time guillimots, the noise and smell is unbelievable. One girl on the boat learnt the very hard way that one should always keep ones mouth shut when looking up at the birds!

Gannets on St Kilda

From Harris we took the most amazing trip to St Kilda, four small islands in the Atlantic. Off the main St Kilda island is Boreray and huge rock pillars known as the Stacs teaming with bird colonies, a twitchers paradise.
