Glaciers and the sea have carved some dramatic features in Foula's layered sandstone, including the breathtaking 1,200 ft (366m) sheer drop of the Kame, Britain's second-highest sea cliff. Gaada Stack's three pillars tower over the rugged north coast of the island, with its stacks, steep-sided geos, and a storm beach called Da Stanes. Da Sneck ida Smaallie is a rock fault over 100 feet (30m) deep.
Full O' Flowers
In the long midsummer days, Foula's wildflowers provide a glorious burst of colour. Sea Pinks, blue Spring Squill and yellow Tormentil carpet the shoreline while Marsh Marigolds and wild orchids blossom gold and purple in ditches and marshes, with white tufted Bog Cotton, Sphagnum Moss, Sundew and Crowberry making patterns across the moorland.
