I was keen to go back to Yesnaby, where I took some good pictures of the cliffs last year. Again, the weather did not really co-operate. The wind was good as it made for good looking waves, but the sun was hiding and the skies were leaden. This time we walked a bit north, towards Skara Brae. Like the Pancake Rocks in New Zealand the layered structure of the cliffs is very striking. I wonder if it works like with tree trunks, can you tell the age of the cliff by counting its layers?
A bit further north there was a fence made up of ‘standing stones.’ On the left is a good example of a ‘geo.’
The stack we came across was not as high as The Old Man Of Hoy and probably not as difficult to climb, but still I passed on this occasion.
