Burial Isle and the Mull of Galloway

(NB: If you're reading this on Facebook, the original post is from my blog) Took this photo yesterday - Burial Isle is just off Ballyhalbert, the most easterly point in Northern Ireland. There's a legend that it has a secret Danish burial chamber full of Viking treasure - if you could find it under the guano! The land in the foreground is mainland Ulster, then Burial Isle, with a snowy Mull of Galloway in Scotland on the horizon. Click to enlarge.

Excellent photograph Mark, very clear and the viking story must be true! - Glad there is no dirty car in the way to block the beautiful view! - Mark A
