Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

It's quite distinctive so if you've seen it, it's easy to recognize.

It is the only source for Ailsite, a type of blue granite that supposedly makes the finest curling stones. No longer mined, a few are still made from loose stones that are collected there. There is an historic light house and it is home to a large colony of gannets. It is also for sale, should you want to own an iconic landmark.

I suppose I'd better find another picture......
