Coastline from Malcolm's Head
Coastline from Malcolm's Head
This is as near identical a viewpoint as I could find to HZ1970 : Coastline near Malcolm's Head which was taken in the summer of 1974. There are few differences to this view in 36 years, but they are significant for the island. First, the wind turbine constructed in 1982 is evident - sadly in July 2010 it was not operating and needing repair. Second, a community hall has been built beside the school - in the picture these are the nearest visible buildings to Sheep Rock. It is difficult to assess how much the coastline has eroded in the 36 years.
