Overlooking Hoy Sound
This is a view taken from a wartime concrete gun emplacement looking across the rocky foreshore to Graemsay and Hoy. Hoy Low is the light on the nearer island. Ward Hill and Cuilags on Hoy in the distance are cloud-topped. The gun would have covered the western approach to Scapa Flow.
