Roger and Margaret took their camper van on a trip round Shetland, and the photos below show some of the sea stacks that they saw. The lighthouse is at Muckle Flugga, the most northerly rock in the British Isles.

The best route up Bowfell must be via the Climbers Traverse and then up the Great Slab.
