Found 3 geocaches (geocaching) in Unst and the only one in Yell today. Long hill walk to the first one on Hermaness, didn't go on to find the puffins but saw a couple of gannetries and Britain's most northerly rock. John took a route new to him on Hermaness so I could find the geocache and niether Craig or I had been there before - took a geocache to get me there! The location of the Yell geocache was also new territory to all of us.

Signs of a dry summer, this peaty pool is dry and the peat exposed and cracked:
