taken 7 years ago, near to North Halley, Orkney Islands, Great Britain

Repentance Stools - Dale of Helzie
Repentance Stools - Dale of Helzie
Repenting Stools on old maps. Nothing in Archives nor on the Web gave a clue as to the origin of the name.
Just below Dot, in the cliffs, are the Hidie Holes HY5608 : The Hidie Holes of Helzie (where local men avoided the Press Gangs). There is a clear mention of those in the original OS surveyor's notes.
