Arran - yes again

This is a picture of Ceum na Caillich, translated as Witch's Step, from North Glen Sannox.

I took it just before noticing an aerial dog-fight between two Peregrine Falcons and two Golden Eagles - I didn't get a photo because I only had the small camera, but the speed these birds were moving at meant I'd never have been able to use the big camera anyway.

The Peregrines had a nest just under a boiler plate and the Eagles were too close for their liking. Watching the Peregrines stooping and the Eagles rolling on their backs to present talons upwards was absolutely breath-taking.
