Photo Fest - School Trip to Mousa

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!


  1. What lovely photographs - I especially like the lichen!

  2. Thank you - I like taking close ups of things we usually walk past!
