Our ambassador Verena Splett and friend Laura Woolley recently visited St Abbs Head, an hour east of Edinburgh on the Berwickshire coast. Much of the area is greywacke and siltstone sandstone varieties but the cliffs themselves, rising 300ft above sea level, are volcanic and have weathered the frequent battering of the North Sea.
Both avid outdoors photographers they chose St Abbs for the high cliffs which provide spectacular views of the coastline. And for the wildlife, sea birds in the many thousands of course and also seals, which they heard yet despite their best efforts, and a day spent wandering the coastline, they did not actually see. Next time. Lack of seal shots notwithstanding, the photographs are stunning.
Verena is using her Utility Archive Fell Zip Backpack in Basalt.
