A quick scan at Yesnaby.

Yesnaby, a favourite destination for a cliff top walk on the west mainland coast. It is rightly famous for its wild flowers growing in the maritime heath. Most notably the Scottish Primrose which grows in abundance along with Grass of Parnassus and other staples such as Eyebright. And along the cliff tops Ladies Bedstraw and Wild Thyme. The cliffs have a number of rock stacks along there length. There is even one with access for the intrepid as you will see in the photos. Its an interesting place with some interesting geological features and one or two industrial ones!, see if you can find where the mill stones were quarried from the rock.
