Since you're all obviously fans of Weird Geological Phenomena, I thought I'd put up some more photos of Fingal's Cave.  I went for the Informative Photos this time, rather than the Strange and Atmospheric ones.  As Fingal's Cave is unfamiliar to a couple of you (the location, not the overture...) I've taken it as an excellent excuse to put up some more photos...

A view into the cave, first of all:- 
 



And some close-ups of the columns:-




I particularly like the view below, which shows just how mixed up the geology is round that neck of the woods.  Now, I'm no geologist, but I think that the vertical columns represent one lava flow which has cooled and cracked into the vertical hexagonal columns.  The upper columns, which lie at a different angle, appear to represent a later lava flow, showing just how much seismic upheaval took place in the period between both lava flows...
