Scotland, April-May, 2005


I said I would post about my recent epic schlep across Scotland, from the Shetlands to the Outer Hebrides to Skye. So here goes. The first stop on my itinerary was Foula, the most remote inhabited island in the British archipelago, twenty miles west of the icy Shetlands. The main port of embarkation for Foula is the airport of Tingwall - in the Shetlands. It's pictured above. Quite a sense of bustling urgency, I think you will agree. Anyway - it was at this luxurious airport that I climbed in the world's smallest plane and set off for the home-made gravel air-strip of 'Ultima Thule' - the 'last land on earth' - Foula.  Posted by Hello
