Stone Age Carloway Broch, Isle of Lewis, Scotland by Jim Richardson

The fog was just lifting when I got to Carloway Broch at Carloway on the Isle of Lewis. I had to run to catch the last of it (and scolding myself for not gettng there earlier.) This stone age broch is believed to date from 100 to 300 BC. Though massive it is not thought to be a fortification as such, but a impressive dwelling for a small community. ©Jim Richardson All rights reserved.

Puffins nesting in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland by JC Richardson on Flickr.

Puffins bask in the sun on the rock scree above a small bay. Tens of thousands of puffins breed in the burrows amongst the rocks on the small islands near the Isle of Lewis. Within a few minutes of sitting down and being still Puffins were landing just a few feet away from me. A delightful afternoon.
