Stac Lee
This photo was taken from the summit of Stac an Armin. The nearby companion is a very young gannet

Stac Lee is the obvious dark stac left of centre. But the interest is in the profile beyond. From left to right, we have Dun, Hirta (with Conachair as the highest point), and Soay. Now, the name Hirta derives from Hiort, a Norse word meaning warrior. It is not difficult to visualise this profile as that of a sleeping warrior, even if he does appear to have been beheaded!
