  1. Been there, done that Ian - so thanks for refreshing the memories. It really is a beautiful island and those sea cliffs are quite incredible. I remember standing at the top of one and could have dropped a stone onto a boat hundreds of feet below... I caught a guillemot in some nettles by one of those ruined buildings, ran into the sea with it and tried to out-swim it. I failed! Also, a teacher from somewhere in the midlands was trying to restore one of the buildings. I remember the pile of beer cans in one corner..
