Ten Ness Men

Sulasgeir is a most remote island in the UK where survival - not habitation - is possible for a limited time. An exclusive group of ten men from the Lewis township of Ness is permitted by law to harvest here the guga or young gannet. The recent television  programme on them is featured on BBC Scotland.

Incredible post, remember reading of such in Peter May's 'The Blackhouse'.
