Sceilig Beag (Little Skellig)

Kerry in high summer is simply stunning. Actually it’s fairly amazing all year round. But when the sun shines it rises to an entirely different level. But as we all know too well, that can change in a matter of minutes. The vagaries of the Irish weather and all that. Here’s a view of #LittleSkellig (Sceilig Bheag) seen from the …
