A Postscript on Rocks

The Yellow Tappie is a distinctive boulder of about ten foot height that sits atop the rocks on the south side of the Herring Hole. Not only is it distinctive but it is predominantly yellow in colour due to the lichens that grow on it. We’re getting close to Downies now and I believe that this name came from the locals that stayed there. This is another name that is more commonly known by word of mouth rather than being listed on any map. 

Note to the bouldering gang – give this rock a try. It strikes me as being quite a challenge – a ten foot drop on three sides on to rock and a forty foot drop on the north side directly to the sea. No need to use a mat if you try the north face.
