Deil's Heid

Arbroath, Angus, Scotland

The walk from Arbroath to Auchmithie is one of my favourite Scottish coastal walks. It feature impressive cliffs and bays and is dotted by numerous rock formations. The Deil's Heid is a stack made of the red sandstone which is ubiquitous on this stretch of coast. It is not a true sea stack as it always manages to keep one toe on dry land. I waited until the sun had started to dip behind the surrounding cliffs and then captured the moment when the shadow and horizon were aligned. As luck would have it a distant rainbow also made an appearance.
