Cave on the Island of Rona
Cave on the Island of Rona
Rona (R˛naidh, in Gaelic) is a remote outlying island of the Outer Hebrides, some 44 miles NNE of the Butt of Lewis. It is thus more remote from the main islands of the Outer Hebrides than St Kilda. It was last inhabited in 1844. The cave shown in the photo is the result of erosion by the sea. Eventually, the entire northern peninsula of the island will probably become a separate island as a result of the continuing erosion by Atlantic storms.
