This photo has less obvious identifying features. Perhaps others will have as much chance as richardh1905 with this one, but there again.......

I'll pass on this one, Mike. The Shiant Islands look like a special place.


One of my visits to Sule Skerry coincided with the puffin nesting season - a few around in the daytime but most were in their burrows sitting on their eggs. But in the evening, the partners would come in after a day's fishing at sea - tens of thousands of puffins in the air, circling around the lighthouse. There was an outer circle of birds going in one direction, and remarkably, those closer to the light were flying the opposite way around it. A really stunning sight in the twilight, made more special by the six beams of the lighthouse cutting through the mist that had delayed our departure. And strangely, they hardly made a sound - only the fluttering of tens of thousands of wings. One of the most remarkable things that I have seen in my life.

A new one for you.



It's been on TV recently. Where is it and what is it?

  I think you are right, somewhere near the bottom left hand corner of the island.

An additional clue. This creature was near the start of this relatively short walk. You might often see one of these there.

3rd clue. The rocks in the first photo can be seen in this picture, if you look closely.

Absolutely no idea, but it looks a stunning place and I'll be watching for the answer.

I met that deer on the Isle of Arran  :) . Perhaps some pet picker took it for a ride and then dumped it. :D

This is not an island and the deer is not a pet, but there is an enclosure. There is a connection to the sea, but this is not the sea. I am sure there will be others on the forum who have walked or visited here.
