HY5708 : The Bought - Helzie

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

The Bought - Helzie
The Bought - Helzie
Between The Kettle and Scava Taing is small head - The Bought. At the left of this picture is a cave leading to a long tunnel. Don't go in there unless you are brave.
It seemed about 35 metres long, winding leftwards into darkness, finishing somewhere under the Covenanter's Graves.
