The Pull of a Place
Here's a small image of a very small school. It's on Sanday and also serves the community of Canna that's just across a nearby footbridge. The pupils can be counted on the fingers of one hand. The place does have a pull, quite literally. Compass Hill, at the north-eastern corner of the island, has a sufficiently high iron content to distort the compasses of passing ships.
