The Grip of Cleaton

The history of Westray is told in two small volumes. One is its telephone directory, with its handful of names, many of which seem to be Old Norse, and the other of which is the Ordnance Survey map, with its ancient place names.

Here’s the Grip of Cleaton and the rocks below it just off Noup Head. The ‘Grip’ is the chasm in the headland.
