Handa Island

I took Nafies and Suleman on a guided tour of the highlights of north west Scotland last week. One of the highlights was Handa Island, where we saw puffins, arctic skua, great skua, thousands of guillemots and razorbills, fulmar, kittiwake, tern etc etc. We also saw a large colony of seals and enjoyed a delightful time on the beach waiting for the ferry at the end of ther afternoon. The Great Stack of Handa is particularly impressive - a 300 foot high stack that is home to thousand upon thousand breeding pairs of sea birds.
