Sea stack near Yesnaby

This photo was taken on a walk from Yesnaby to Stromness. How much longer will this stack stay standing I wonder, although I think my camera angle may be a bit deceiving!

Comments:
This is a great shot, we like Yesnaby so much it is very scenic, we were there in July and it was such a beautiful day. Two years before we had visited and it was so rainy we couldn't take any pictures so when we visited from Canada this year we made sure we went there, thanks for the great photo

This is North Gaulton Castle. It had it's 15 minutes of fame when it was used to advertise a new Rover car some years ago. A helicopter was used to ferry the vehicle across and park it on top!
Ian Munro, Cliffie Leonard, Hamish Ross and I climbed this stack in the mid eighties.
