More Scenes from Boreray - 1

While we're on the subject of Boreray, here are a few more photos. The first is of the free church; constructed in the 1880s, and last used in the 1920s. Jerry Cox, the only resident of Boreray these days, told me rats often nest in the structure. I took a look inside, but did not stay long, as noisy critters of some kind were scampering around in the rotten rafters.

The next photo is, to me anyway, a unique view: Boreray seen from Boreray. On the horizon to the left is Hirta, and to the right is Boreray of St Kilda.
