I do it with the help of "google" plus an important amount of luck.
When you search "holy stone tower scotland", you will get the list of results (1st page, 8th place)

May be is kind of "cheating"..., you guys let me know.

It's all in the search term isn't it.. good job. Not cheating as far as I'm concerned..

I think the only real way to 'cheat' is to use 'tineye', a reverse search for on-line images, but even that only works if the poster uses an already existing image.. since most of us use our own pics that's rarely an avenue that works well.
