The Danes' Pier, Lamb Ness, Stronsay, Orkney
From LinkExternal link : "In spite of the persistent tradition of artificial construction, this remarkable L-shaped boulder-spit off the S side of Lamb Ness is nowadays dismissed as a natural formation. While there is certainly no indication of built structures, and the natural origin must be accepted, the parallel with features in Sanday and Papa Westray require that the matter be given further thought."
