We went to the island of Mousa on our school trip. Mousa is now uninhabited but contains the world's best preserved pictish broch and some great wildlife. We went with a guide from the field studies trust and had a great time exploring - including climbing the internal staircase to the top of the 42' broch.
We weren't the only ones interested in the wildlife!
Got a likin' for lichen!

The following photos were taken on the island of Bressay at the weekend. The island of Noss, a nature reserve only inhabited by nature wardens in the summer.
The old coastguard watch tower - and the site of a geocache!
