The Elusive Seven
The seven remain elusive. A Scottish Islands Explorer reporter has just returned from a successful trip to the Highlands & Islands, but his wish to land on the Flannans or Seven Hunters was not fulfilled because of the swell caused by pressure rather than waves that are whipped up by wind. There will be another occasion when these compelling islands are within reach, although the sort of landing depicted below when the lighthouse was manned, must now breach health and safety requirements. The aerial view, above, is a reminder that a helicopter trip would be bliss.
