taken 20 years ago, 4 km from Kinloch, Highland, Great Britain

Shearwater Burrow.
Shearwater Burrow.
The higher reaches of the Rum Cuillin are covered in burrows. These are the nesting sites of the Manx Shearwater (Puffinus puffinus). They return to the nest only at night. It is said that Trollaval gets its name from the weird nocturnal noises heard up here during the breeding season. This is their only mountain breeding site, normally they use low lying small islands. The birds supports a large rat population as well. Taken on the way up Askival
