Flannan Isles 6

We will say goodbye to the Flannans from the top of the island. Eilean Mor has two summits: the eastern one with the lighthouse, and the west summit with its cairn and puffins, which is where the fellow in the photo is heading.  

On the way to the west summit

This hefty cairn marks the top of the west summit. The next landfall is St Kilda, some 50 miles away, then Rockall, another 200 miles out. A beer was called for to celebrate getting onto the island - Slainte Mhor!

Happy Hour on the Flannans
