Cliffs at Northside, Birsay

Picture taken on 17th May 2002, showing the cliffs at Northside, east of the Point of Buckquoy, in the region of my picture #710 I believe.

These cliffs are forgotten about compared with the ones on Hoy or the Mainland's Atlantic coast, but are no less spectacular, especially in a heavy sea. Note large cave. Note extremely dangerous cliff edge!
