Cliff top monument at Meall Geal
Cliff top monument at Meall Geal, taken 19 years ago
The monument is to John Wilson Dougal, the founder of a chemical company in Edinburgh, and an amateur geologist. For many years he explored the geology of the Outer Hebrides, and was the first to describe their flinty-crush rock formations. Dougal wrote up many of his island adventures, and after his death they were published in Island Memories, a jewel of a book for anyone interested in the Hebrides.
