Red Head, Eday and Grey Head, Calf of Eday
Red Head, Eday and Grey Head, Calf of Eday
Red Head in the foreground, Grey in the back. The small white line on Grey Head is a passage right through the rock - though a bit too narrow to travel through. Both headlands had quarries which provided the stone for St Magnus Cathedral, Kirkwall - red stone and a greyish yellowish stone.
