HY5608 : Trow's Stool of Helzie

taken 8 years ago, near to North Halley, Orkney Islands, Great Britain

Trow's Stool of Helzie
Trow's Stool of Helzie
Almost certainly the Devil's Stool of the old map. I scoured the whole cliff looking for what should be an obvious feature. The names have been changed over the years and the wording on the maps is sometimes too far from the feature. But this was a stool, even the books have been pushed off by the Devil to make room for his bottom.
But see also HY5608 : Chair for the Devil - Helzie
