  Yellow and Green Lichen - Orkney Churchyard By Sea
by scotlandscotour

Favorite thing: You only get lichen like this when the air is pure and clean! So come to Orkney to clean your lungs out (and it's peaceful too!)

This is typical - an old church beside the water, calm and meditative. Well it was 7am!

You will arrive at this bay if coming on the JOG passenger ferry. Otherwise, it is at the south tip of South Ronaldsay, near the Tomb of the Eagles.

More info to follow.
