How to describe the proud, windy, remote, astonishingly tough island of Foula? It's difficult. So maybe this picture says a thousand words, or at least a few dozen. The seas around Foula are BRUTAL: the Admiralty records one calm day a year, making these some of the roughest oceans on the globe. So aggressive are these seas, the Foula ferry boat, pictured above, is craned onto a platform when it is in harbour. Otherwise the boat would be utterly crushed in one of the many storms. Now that's windy.  Posted by Hello
