NT1882 : Inchcolm

This is 1 of 4 images, with title Inchcolm in this square
St Colm's Abbey and the beach on this small but very famous island in the Firth of Forth. The abbey is in very good condition, and a lot of the structure survived the reformation. The island is also one big gullery and I was attacked when taking this photo. The ground is littered with eggs, there are no predators like hedgehogs and stoats here. The vegetation is very lush, fertilised by years of guano.
