A First Thursday

It was on Thursday 20 February 1472 that Orkney and Shetland joined Scotland. The Scotsman has feature article on the event and Julian Paren took this photograph of The Noup, Foula, just over 50 years ago. It is a piece of landscape that has remained unaltered since then, despite fierce weather on occasions, and during the previous 543 years.
