near to Airighean na h-Annaid [other Features], Na h-Eileanan an Iar, Great Britain

Beach between the Shiants.
Beach between the Shiants.
The two main islands of the Shiants are joined by a beach which is sometimes inundated. The gap between the two steep islands is a motorway for auks, you are frightened to open your mouth for fear of swallowing a puffin or razorbill. The Shiants are very rich in birdlife. Taken from above the house on Eilean nan Tigh, looking north to Garbh Eilean.
