Ness Men Ready

St Ronan's sister, Brenhilda, supposedly lived there in the 6th Century, while Dean Munro reported that the men of Ness visited her former 'home', Sula Sgeir, in 1549. Soon it will be in the news again for the hunters will be setting off within weeks for the islet and the centuries-old annual cull will begin. To some diners the young guga will be a delicacy; to others it will not. However, take a look at a remarkable collection of images that appears on Flickr and experience something of being on a rocky outpost some 40 miles from habitation.

Scottish Islands Explorer - something of an acquired taste, out now
