Fraser writes:
'Last year a group of us walked from Yesnaby to Stromness It's something i'd been meaning to do for ages - but never quite got round to. I'd walked as far as the first stack- but always heard that there was another one just a few bays down towards stromness. So last year set out with food and water and did the walk. Beautiful scenery, and a really great walk. Thoroughly recommended to anyone who's not done it.'

That is indeed a great walk, Fraser. Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't North Gaulton Castle feature in a television advert for Rover cars during the 1980s? I think a helicopter lowered said vehicle onto the stack - an interesting image, but quite what the message was I don't know...perhaps that the tailbacks are shorter in Orkney!!
