Old Man of Hoy Gallery Back to gallery list

An ascent of the Old Man of Hoy had long been on my list of must-do adventures. With my good friend, Kai, we watched the weather reports for an opportune opening. Our first weekend slot was rained out so we sat and waited. Two weeks later the forecast was favourable and we drove north. Saturday started wet and cloudy, but the drizzle stopped within an hour and we walked in. We were treated to what turned into a fine and dry day with the sea stack entirely to ourselves.
