Muckle Skerry
Muckle Skerry
Aerial view of Muckle Skerry, taken on a flight from Inverness to Shetland via Orkney. The two towers of the lighthouse can clearly be seen - only the taller of these (on the left) now shows a light. For more details see ND4678 : Muckle Skerry Lighthouse
To the west (right on the image) the three little water features near the coast can be discerned.
Behind the island can be seen two of the accompanying tiny skerry groups - almost level with the lighthouses is Louther Skerry at ND47917720 (showing as nothing much more than a whitish streak); and top left of the image is Clettack Skerry (ND48557757)
